SOURCE: need to replace upper and lower ball joints on a 1999 Ford Exploe

This job is essentially man against beast with hammer style of job. You will need an alignment after you are finished, seriously easier and safer to let a shop do this.

If you do it yourself be advised of the HUGE potential energy stored in the spring, and do not allow it to release....

Here's a YouTube video showing the procedure on the passenger side. Apparently, you can't get just the upper ball joint, you have to replace the upper control arm, but it looks to be a fairly easy project. You can skip the first three minutes of the video - the work starts at about 3:15.

How do I replace upper ball joint


I guess you never used You Tube Video

After Googling your automotive questions,
you go to you tube

You replace the upper control arm with the joint,
on most ford products,only the lower ball joints
can be pressed out & replaced

If your doing the upper joint, do both sides & if
you have to do the uppers, the bottoms are shot
a long time ago,so do all 4 & both wheel hub bearings
if they have a 100,000 on them

Can you show me detail pictures of step by step repair of ball joint and controll arm of 1990 ford thunderbird v6 3.1 automatc


prev.gif next.gif REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Upper ball joints are not replaceable. The upper ball joint is part of the upper control arm bushing joint and is not serviced separately. If the upper ball joints are found to be defective, the entire upper control arm bushing joint assembly must be replaced. Lower Ball Joint INSPECTION
  1. Support the vehicle in normal driving position with ball joints loaded.
  2. Wipe the grease fitting and checking surface, so they are free of dirt and grease. The checking surface is the round boss into which the grease fitting is threaded.
  3. The checking surface should project outside the cover. If the checking surface is inside the cover, replace the lower arm assembly. prev.gif next.gif

Squeeking in front end when turning or going over bumps on 1999 ford explorer what would cause that? besides ball joints.


Ok I have seen a-frame bushings upper and lower make noise, But most likely its shocks if you have had your ball joints checked.
