No. The castle nut that holds the ball joint on to the knuckle is all that there is.

You can do yourself,BUT may need to
have the joint pressed out and back in,
IF you can not borrow the tools or rent

I would take the knuckle to an auto parts
store that could do it for you

I would not pay someone to pull the knuckle

Do both sides

Also flush Power Steering,Drain Trans 2 or 3 times etc,
while your involved.

Lower balll joints to my 2002 lincoln ls are bad


You can purchase the lower ball join on ebay for around $70. The piece will simply "press in" just as any ball joint replacement would. Find a mechanic willing to do the work for you if you bring him the parts. Just go to ebay and search 2002 lincoln ls lower ball joint. It's a fairly small piece, but you'll have to have it installed by a professional. I just replaced mine...

Good luck!

Repair lower ball joints


The front lower ball joints are pressed into the steering knuckle. Once the brake components are removed, the CV shaft nut and tie rod ends can be removed. Remove the front strut bolts, and the lower ball joint nut. Separate the lower arm from the ball joint. Once the knuckle assembly is off the car remove the lower joint snap ring and dust boot. Utilizing a ball joint press (should be able to rent from local parts store) press the joint out of the knuckle. Re-installation is naturally reverse of removal. I hope this helps.
