The upper ball joint on your pickup is a pretty easy job for an experienced technician. It should be about $60 for the ball joint an hour or so for labor ($100? prices vary by location) and then an alignment would be in order which is about another $100. So, $260 for one side with an alignment would be a fair price in my experience.

How to remove upper ball joint on driver side of an 1994 GMC Sonoma


The OEM ball joint is riveted into the upper control arm. There are two possible ways to replace the joint. You can purchase the entire upper control arm/ball joint assembly, which comes complete with the upper control arm bushings. This part costs about $150.00. You will also have to deal with the coil spring when replacing it this way. You can also buy just the ball joint for about $30.00. This will require that you drill out the rivets of the original ball joint and then bolt in the replacement with the bolts that are provided with it. The 2WD and 4WD versions are the same. See this link.

How to replace control arms on a 93 protege


Raise the front of the vehicle and support it by the frame with jack stands. Remove the front wheels using the air gun and a socket.

  • 2 Place the floor jack under the lower control arm as close to the ball joint as possible. Raise the jack until it begins to lift the control arm. Make sure that the floor jack is positioned where it cannot slip off the control arm.
  • 3 Remove the cotter pin in the upper control arm ball joint using the wire cutters. Remove the nut on the bottom of the upper ball joint using a wrench. Separate the ball joint using the ball joint separator tool. Insert the tool between the spindle and the upper control arm and hit it with a hammer until it comes loose from the spindle.
  • 4 Remove the upper control arm by removing the nuts on the engine side of the arm holding it to the frame. Use a wrench for this, but as the bolts are loosened, keep the alignment shims together that are behind each nut. It will be necessary to replace these on the side they were removed from for the alignment.
  • 5 Lift the upper control arm off and remove the upper ball joint using the ball joint installer kit. This procedure is only necessary if the new control arm does not come with a ball joint, which would be unusual.
  • 6 Place the receiver over the bottom of the ball joint and the smaller pusher cylinder on the topside. Place the large C-clamp from the kit over the cylinders. Use the ½-inch drive air gun and socket to push the ball joint out. Reverse the process to install the ball joint. Install the upper control arm in reverse order of removal.

    NEED NEW BALL JOINTS WHAT PARTS WOULD I NEED


    Ball joints come as upper and lower. Requires at least a ball joint separater tool and small hand grinder along with basic hand tools. Some lowers are pressed in/out and require either a c-clamp style press or to remove control arm and take to a machine shop to be pressed in using a floor press. Parts are ordered by vehicle make, ball joints run in the $25-$40 range per joint. All you need to do is go to the parts store, tell them what vehicle and they can give you the proper joints you require. 2 upper joints and 2 lower joints. (1 each on each vehicle side). Not and easy job, but not impossible to do at home. Joints for your vehicle should be in stock at most auto parts stores.
    Call around for price and availability.

    The upper ball joints are replaceable without replacing the control arms. Use Moog K80008 ball joints and a ball joint press.

    Hi, trying to replace an upper ball joint on a 2005 Dodge Stratus The ball joint is a press in but is there a snap ring..... holding it into the control arm? I can't get this thing to budge.


    very often when working with press in ball joints you have to heat them up with a torch get them to around 750 degrees or more and then beat the snap ring out literly with a small chisel (punch).
