SOURCE: front upper ball joint replacement

The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......

The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

Sorry.

SOURCE: bad left lower ball joint 2004 nissan quest

most of these ball joints can be installed by themselves however since the control arm are so light it is unsafe just to do the balljoints still in order to replace the control arm you dont need to compress any springs just take it apart and put a new one in.

You can replace them seperately,but they need pressed out and in. Other methods of removing and installing likely will damage control arm.

SOURCE: How do I fix the rear the ball joint on a 2004

yes you can fix it and it is easy. i just finished doing the job and it took me under 3 hours. rent the tool from (ball joint presser) from a local auto parts place. make sure you get the kit with a lot of accessories. you dont have to take off the control arm. once you initially unseat it it moves out easily. you might have to readjust the tool if it bottoms out.

Front left ball joint for 06' Mercury Montego


The ball joints are part of the lower control arm . The control arm is not extremely difficult, but not easy either. First remove the nut on balljoint, then pull the ball joint out of the knuckle, that may take a pry bar, remove front control arm nut and bolt, and two bolts on rear of control arm bushing, reverse process to install. The Ford workshop manual says to replace the control arm nuts and bolts, but I hardly ever do. Have never had a problem. Torque front bolt to 111 lb-ft, and rear to 73 lb-ft. Hope that is good for you.

How to replace front ball joint


the ball joint is replaced as a lower control arm. You will need to remove the tire, remove the nut that attaches the ball joint to the knuckle, seperate the ball joint from the knuckel, remove the radius arm nut, remove the bolt that secures the lower control arm from the subframe, and then remove the control arm.

You have two options. 1. You can replace the upper control arms which come with the ball joints. Replacing is simple. Remove the nut that holds the ball joint to the knuckle.

Ball joint repair and how do you do it


To perform the following procedure, the lower control arm must be removed from the vehicle. Refer to Removal And Installation for that procedure.

  1. Using a screw driver or other suitable tool, pry the seal boot off of the ball joint assembly
  2. Position receiving cup, Special Tool 6758 to support lower control arm when removing ball joint assembly. Install Remover, Special Tool 6919 on the top of the ball joint assembly.
  3. Using the arbor press, press the ball joint assembly completely out of the lower control arm.

NOTE: When installing ball joint in lower control arm, position the ball joint in control arm so notch in ball joint stud is in the direction shown. This will ease assembly of the ball joint to the steering when installing pinch bolt.

  1. By hand, position ball joint into ball joint bore of lower control arm. Be sure ball joint is not cocked in the bore of the control arm, this will cause the ball joint to bind when being pressed into control arm.

 

  1. Position control arm with installed ball joint, in an arbor press with Receiving Cup, Special Tool 6758 supporting the lower control arm. Then center Installer, Special Tool 6908-4 on the bottom of the ball joint
  2. Carefully align all pieces. Then press the ball joint into the lower control arm until it is completely seated against surface of lower control arm. The ball joint is correctly installed when there is no gap between the ball joint and the lower control arm. Do not apply excessive force against the ball joint or the lower control arm.
  3. Install a NEW seal boot by hand as far as possible on the ball joint. Installation of the seal boot is to be with the shield positioned as shown.

CAUTION: Do not use an arbor press to install the sealing boot on the ball joint. Damage to the sealing boot will occur if excessive pressure is applied to the sealing boot when it is being installed.

  1. Place Installer, Special Tool 6758 over seal boot and squarely align it with bottom edge of seal boot. Apply hand pressure to Special Tool 6758 until seal boot is pressed squarely against top surface of lower control arm.

CAUTION: A replacement ball joint is not pre-lubricated. Properly lubricate the replacement ball joint using Mopar Multi-Mile grease or an equivalent. Lubricate ball joint after seal boot is installed but prior to top of seal boot being pushed down below notch in ball joint stud. Air must vent out of the seal boot at notch when grease is pumped into ball joint, failure to do so will balloon and damage seal boot. Do not over grease the ball joint, this will prevent the seal boot from pushing down on the stud of the ball joint.

CAUTION: After the ball joint is properly greased, clip the end of the grease fleeing off below the hex. The ball joint seal boot is non-purgeable and further greasing is not required and can result in damage to the seal boot.

  1. Reinstall lower control arm on vehicle.

Replacing ball joints 2004 in 2004 z-71


You'll need to seperate the control arm from the wheel hub. If the ball joints are installed with rivots, you'll need to grind off the heads and knock them out with a punch. The new ball joints should have bolts and nuts to reinstall the new ball joints. Don't forget to grease the new ones, they come with very little grease installed.
