Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
The ball joint on your vehicle is not replacable by itself. The control arm which holds the ball joint must be replaced. The nuts holding the arms on will have a small metal tab. That tab holds the arm in allignment. Note the location of the tab before removing. These must go back in the same way they came out. Also check the new arms for correct sides. There will be a "R" and "L" on them. They can be confused and will fit. Good luck then get an alignment to check.

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....
