Lots of trouble and expense and all you get is one new joint. trade that labor expense and for about the same money get a new or reconditioned axle that has 2 good cv joints, boots, and new axle. and you can change out the whole axle yourself much easier than the joint.

Replace lower ball joints. How do you replace Lower ball jonits?

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle, allowing the front suspension to hang free.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. WARNING
    Be careful when working in the area of the CV-joint boot. Damage to the boot could result in eventual CV-joint failure. If necessary, install CV-joint boot protector tool J-34754 or equivalent, to protect the boot.
  3. On Eldorado and Seville with 4.6L engine, remove the road sensing suspension position sensor from the lower control arm.
  4. Remove the cotter pin and nut from the ball joint stud. Use ball joint separator tool J-36226 or equivalent, on Deville and Fleetwood or ball joint separator tool J-35315 or equivalent, on Eldorado and Seville, to separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle.
  5. On Deville and Fleetwood, loosen the stabilizer bar link nut.
    1. Drill out the 3 rivets retaining the ball joint to the lower control arm and remove the ball joint. NOTE: Recommended drill-bit is 1⁄2 inch (13 mm). Fig. 1: Drilling the rivets out of the lower control arm 91048g05.gif
      Fig. 2: Installing the bolts in the lower control arm 91048g06.gif
      To install:
  6. Attach the new ball joint to the lower control arm with 3 mounting bolts and nuts.
    1. On Deville and Fleetwood, the bolts must be installed from the top of the control arm.
    2. On Eldorado and Seville, the bolts must be installed from the bottom of the control arm
    3. Tighten the nuts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
    4. On Catera, the bolts must be installed from the top of the control arm.
    5. Tighten the nuts to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
  7. On Deville and Fleetwood, tighten the stabilizer bar link nut to 13 ft. lbs. (17 Nm).
  8. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and install the castellated nut.
  9. On Deville and Fleetwood, tighten the ball joint nut to 88 inch lbs. (10 Nm). Then tighten the nut an additional 120°, during which a tighten of 41 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) must be obtained.
  10. On Eldorado and Seville, tighten the ball joint nut to 84 inch lbs. (10 Nm). Then tighten the nut an additional 120°, during which a minimum torque of 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) must be obtained. If the minimum torque is not obtained, check for stripped threads. If the threads are okay, replace the ball joint and knuckle.
  11. On Catera, tighten the pinch bolt to 74 ft. lb. (100 Nm).
  12. Install a new cotter pin. If the cotter pin cannot be installed because the hole in the stud does not align with a nut castellation, tighten the nut up to an additional 60°to allow for installation. NEVER loosen the nut to provide for cotter pin installation.
  13. On Eldorado and Seville with 4.6L engine, install the road sensing suspension position sensor to the lower control arm.
  14. If necessary, remove the CV-joint boot protector tool.
  15. Install the wheel and tire assembly and lower the vehicle. Fig. 3: Separating the ball joint from the steering knuckle 84208016.gif

Strange clipping sound coming from front right side. where are the cvs joints could it be that? or the drive shaft? it's a touring sedan edition.

It sounds like the CV joint gone bad. Usually when you look underneath the car at the axle that comes out of the inside of the wheel, you will see an rubber boot that looks like an accordion. That boot will be separated with grease sprayed everywhere. That is sure indication that the joint is your problem.
