You will need a Ball Joint tool if the are pressed in and not bolted in. Most major parts stores such as Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts have tool loaner programs where they will let you borrow the tool from them rather than having to by one.

Good Luck, I hope this helps you.

    Sorrry for the delay in responding back, The ball joint tool is the main thing you will need the rest of the tools will be just basics.

You need to get a bypass module from newrockies.com. I think that is the site. Just google bypass mudule and new rockies and you will find it. This is about the only permanent fix.

Lower ball joint broke and i need to replace it. How do i take it off and put a new one in.(do i need a ball joint press) 98 Chevy Silverado 1500


jack up the the side with the broken ball joint under the control arm.
Remove the axle nut (4x4)
remove the caliper and the rotor.
remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle.
Remove the upper and lower control arm nuts and remove knuckle from vehicle.

Using a ball joint press remove and install the ball joint.

tighten axle nut (4x4 only) to 133 lb-ft after everything is assembled.

Upper ball joints/ '89 silverado 1500 4x4


I think the lower ball joints when removing will give you easier access to the top. I would suggest going to the local parts store for a print out of the procedure to be on the safe side.

2000 Silverado L/T Z71 4X4 Lubrication Diagram


Lube points should be: All moving joints in suspension. Ball joints, idler arm, tie rod ends etc. On 4X4's, all universal joints on drive axles (excluding C/V joints... just inspect boots) All slip-joints and "u" joints on driveshafts. Many of these items may not have zirk fittings on them from the factory. If the component has a plug installed, it should be removed & replaced with a fitting. If there is no place for a fitting, when the item wears out, the replacement will have a fitting.
