If you dont have a ball joint press and dont know how to use one then dont do it, but if you do its not that bad of a job just jack the truck up under the control arm remove the brake rotor then take the lower ball joint nut off then use a pickle fork to break the ball joint loose then take the axle nut off push the axle out of the bearing and use the ball joint press to remove and replace the ball joint

2001 sport trac doeslower control arm have to be replaced due to balljoint or just balljoint replaced.


just the ball joint
check -if the ball joint is riveted into the lower control arm, it will be necessary to grind the rivet heads then punch out the rivets
replacement ball joints should come with the bolts needed to replace the rivets
some lower control arms have the ball joints pressed in so it is necessary to press out the old ball joint then press in the new unit

R&R ball joints??


MOST OF THEM HAVE A ZERC FITTING TO GREASE THEM! IF YOU WANT TO REPLACE THEM: YOU WILL NEED A BALL JOINT REMOVAL TOOL ( FROM ANY PARTS STORE)! THEN YOU USE PAINT, OR CHALK, AND MARK THE PART WHERE THE JOINT IS SCREWED ON TO THE SHAFT! THIS WILL HELP YOU COUNT THE NUMBER OF THREADS INSIDE THE BALL JOINT! THEN LOOSEN THE NUT ON THE BALL JOINT ENOUGH SO YOU CAN PLACE THE BALL JOINT TOOL BETWEEN THE JOINT AND THE MOUNT IT GOES THRU! USE A HAMMER TO KNOCK IT LOOSE! ONCE IT IS LOOSE, REMOVE THE NUT, AND WASHER, AND PULL THE BOLT SIDE OF THE JOINT OUT OF THE MOUNT! NOW THE FUN! AS YOU REMOVE THE BALL JOINT FROM THE SHAFT, YOU'LL HAVE TO LOOSEN THE NUT HOLDING THE BALL JOINT! THEN REMOVE THE JOINT FROM THE SHAFT! WHERE THE PAINT STOPS IS WHERE YOU START COUNTING THE THREADS THAT WERE INSIDE THE BALL JOINT! PLACE THE NEW JOINT ON THE SHAFT, AND SCREW IT BACK TO THAT POINT! TIGHTEN THE NUT, PUT THE BOLT SIDE BACK INTO THE MOUNT, AND PLACE THE WASHER, AND NUT BACK ON IT! THEN TIGHTEN IT DOWN, AND YOUR DONE!

How do i replace cv joint on a ford taurus 2003 i cant get the control arm off please help


The control arm is attached with the ball joint,remove the nut on the ball joint,and hit around the stud of the ball joint,hit it hard,but do not hit the stud of the ball joint,it will jar it loose,then use a large pry bar,and stick in the control arm and pry downwards,It is not easy to get the ball joint stud out of the spindle,but it is the only way.but make sure the stud of the ball joint is free from the control arm then push down on the control arm(pry)

Upper and lower ball joints bad on 2000 ranger xlt sport.


If the ball joints are held in with rivits you will need to cut them out. The easiest way is to use an air chisel. Then you need only to knock them (ball joints) out of their hole in the "A" frame. Then you will just reverse the procedure to install the new ball joints. The replacement joints will just be bolt in to place. Pretty straight forward and easy. Just a little labor intense sometimes. You can do it. Good luck.
