Most of those are pressed into the lower control arm and are replaced as a complete assembly. Replace the entire lower control arm.

How to change hub on four wheel drive 1997 blazer


You'll need to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the axleshaft nut, disconnect the ABS sensor wire. Remove the nut holding on the tierod, and disconnect the tierod end, a Pickle Fork will help remove the tierod end and seperating the ball joints. Remove the upper and lower balljoint cotter pins and nuts, seperate the upper and lower balljoints and remove the spindle. The hub is bolted to the spindle from the back with 3 bolts. You maybe need to have the hub pressed out.

How to remove the upper ball joints on a 2001 Ford Explorer Sports track


You will need to jack up the vehicle and also support it by the lower control arms as well as the frame. Remove the front wheels and place them aside.unbolt the upper control arms.....and wedge a pickle fork between the upper balljoint and spindle to knock the upper balljoint loose. Then simply reinstall the new control arms....which have the balljoints in them already.install the balljoint nuts and cotter pins and then reinstall the wheels and lower truck back to the ground.Be sure to drive vehicle to an alignment shop asap so you do not start to eat up your tires. get back to me if you have any more questions...i'm here to help!!!!!

How do i replace the upper and lower ball joints on my 2000 dodge durango


Dear Balljoint Replacer.....
This is a very labor intensive repair.The specialty tools that you need will be an air (or electric) die grinder, and an air hammer.If you already have these then GREAT!!! If not then be prepared to invest in a good $500 purchase for these tools.Once you get the vehicle up in the air and the wheels off then place jackstands underneath the frame and the lower control arms on both sides.Keep in mind to keep the jack stands underneath the lower control arms at all times because your suspension will be under load.Remove the brake calipers from both sides and swing them around and out of the way.....no need to break open the brake system....just swing the caliper and whole hose assy out of the way. Once tis is done its time to loosen and remove both upper and lower balljoint nuts...after that is performed then it's time to shock the spindle with a hammer to release the balljoints from the spindle.Your balljoints will then be ready to be removed.Now you have to take your grinder and score your rivets that hold your balljoints in on both the upper and lower so the top of the rivets are ground down to the control arm.Next take a punch and hammer the rivets in a downward movement to release the rivets and you can remove each balljoint like that.
The new balljoints install with nuts and bolts.Install is reverse of disassembly If you have any questions get back to me...HOPE I COULD HELP!!

Left Side is out of allginment


that easy have a allginment performed on it but first check for play in your upper and lower balljoints and tie rod ends if they hay play in them then a allginment is a waste of money. first get the front end off the ground then take a big pair of channel locks and start check those balljoints and tierodends its easy just put side of the plairs on the nut side then the other side of the plairs beside the balljoint then squez if the balljoint moves up and down then you know you have a bad balljoint and you can follow the same instructions for the tierod ends then after you replace the balljoints or tierod ends get a allginment performed

Balljoints upper &lower


STOP.you will not be able to complete this repair.when changing balljoints on a s/d ford you need a special tool to install the new hub seals on the axles and then install axle with this tool as well.if the hub seals are damaged the hubs will not hold vaccuum and the auto 4x4 will not work.
