I will assume you can get to it. Remove the pinch bolt to the balljoint, remove the nut on the swaybar, remove the bolt to the frame. replace is in oppisite order. do not tighten anything until all boths are in. good luck.

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)
