They make a special tool to press the ball joint (pin) out of the back of the wheel hub. I use a prybar and hammer. Position the prybar under the frame in such a way that you can apply downward pressure on the control arm. The bolt should still be installed holding the control arm to the frame. While applying as much downward pressure as possible on the prybar, hit the ball joint housing on the wheel hub with the hammer sharply and repeatedly until the ball joint falls free. I know it sounds terrible to hit your truck with a hammer, but you are not going to hurt it.

What r problems to be on the look out for on a 1999 chevy malibu with the 3100 v6 in it and there is a rattle when i hit bumps or rough road the struts are fine

Broken stabalizer links, broken stabilizer bar, and worn out stabilizer bar bushings are fairly common. As well as the rear bushings on the front lower control arms. A quick inspection of the front end and you should be able to tell if the links are bad, bar is broken, or the lower control arm bushings are separated. If the rear bushings on the front lower control arms are seperated the lower control arm will look like it is resting on the subframe.

How to change the pittman arm and idler arm on a 1999 S10 Chevy Blazer 4x4?

Pitman arm requires a pitman arm puller, and a tie rod seperator or "pickle fork". Remove the cotter pin on from the joint on the pitman arm and center link, then remove the nuts from both ends of pitman arm. Use the pitman arm puller to remove the pitman arm from the steering gear, then use the tie rod seperator to remove the end from the center link. Reinstall and retighten nuts, do not leave out the cotter pin.
Idler arm will require tie rod seperator. Remove the cotter pin from the end at the center link, use the tie rod seperator to seperate the joint there. Unbolt the idler arm from the frame, and remove. On reinstalling remember to install a new cotter pin. It would be best to have the front end alignment checked after replacing these parts.

remove axle nut,seperate balljoint from control arm,usually a good whack with a hammer on the control arm near the balljoint will free it,pry control arm down to remove knuckle assy, remove roll pin from inner axle joint now you can remove axle,most of the time the inner joint boot tears this is called the d-o-j {double offset joint} replace this boot as well,my suggestion is consider replacing axle with reman depending on mileage 100k or more.remember when reinstalling axle splines need to be lined up on inner shaft so roll pin goes in without problem good luck

I need to replace upper right ball joint, 98 honda civic

This is a pretty easy job.The way i do it is take the two 14mm bolts louse from the strut on the inner fender well,then take the 17mm bolt out of the bottom of the strut on the lower control arm this will make it drop down.Then take the 14mm bolt louse that fastens the ball joint to the spindle take a hammer and hit the upper spindle and it all will come apart.Now you will have the two bolts that holds the upper control arm in place these are 17mm bolts drop the strut down and remove the upper control arm now you can go in with the new one.Hope this helps !!!

2000 Expedition Right Ball Joint

you have to get a ball joint seperator, remove the retaing pin, and then the nut, put the seperator between the ball joint and the mount, use a hammer and hit the end of the seperator with the hammer, this will pop it loose, then take a large crow bar and push down on the control arm, this will free it from the arm... use a drill with a 1/2" bit to drill the rivets out of the top of the ball joint....

the new ball joint with come with nuts and bolts to bolt the new one down....

slide the ball joint back into the arm, and put the nut on and tighten as much as you can, then replace the retaining pin.....
