Your better off have it done bt a tech because you need a press to press them out and in. Also you will have a warranty witk the work. You want to be safe messing with your steering and suspension. I hope this helps.

just tare the axels down and pull the brake callipers and brake disks, to get to the ball joints. un bolt the nuts and take the peice holding the ball joints in and then press out . But you need a ball joint press if you wanna do it on your own

I highly recommend that you have a press available, they dont screw in unfortunatly.
To change uper ball joints; Remove tire Pull codder pin and remve nut Tap ball joint out of wheel/ brake assembly Remove upper control arm compleatly Use Press to push old ball joint out of controll arm.
A torch may be nessisary to heat controll arm. Press new ball joint all the way into controll arm Reinstall every thing Get a professional front end alignment.
Good lcuk and hope this helps.

I REPLACED THE ENTIRE FRONT END OF MINE AND WE USED A HYDRAULIC JACK AND THE WEIGHT OF THE TRUCK TO PRESS THEM OUT AND A BALL PING HAMMER TO PUT THEM BACK.

to remove the axles, remove brake caliper and disc, remove hub assembly, the center hub/axle nut and...(there are i think 3-4 bolts on the back side of the spindle to remove the hub), you may have to force the hub off the spindle with a hammer or air hammer... once the hub is out the axle should slide out of the front differential allowing access to the ball joint nuts for removal...
