Question about Ford Probe
The lower gets the most stress so it does normally wear out first, but should last over 150,000 miles unless the boot was damaged and water got in.
It helps to do both sides at once, because that way you don't have to take the anti-sway bar off.
You start by jacking it up on stands and taking wheels off.
Then you remove pinch bolt holding lower ball joint to knuckle.
This should allow the whole control arm (also called A-frame) to pivot down, once you do both sides).
A pickle fork can be helpful to pry them apart.
Then there is a large spring clip to remove, with the holes in the ends of the spring clip.
Then you tap the joint down and out.
Replacement is the reverse.
