How do I replace the right ball joint on a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country?

If you want to take the easy route use the dorman-control-arm- 520-344. It cost about as twice as much as a ball joint by itself but you will not need any special tools to replace. If you just do the ball joint by itself you will need a ball joint tool to press the old one out and the new one in. Some parts store do offer free tool borrowing programs so its you call

Creaking groan from front driver side tire

The creaking is coming from either the shock ,ball joint, or a-arm bushings. Have someone with you and one person pushing up and down, the other, safely feeling each component till the vibration can be felt. If it is in fact the ball-joint then as long as it is safe (not loose), then just add grease to it as needed and it should go away.

How do you remove a ball joint on a 1987 ford f150 pickup

When doing ball joints on a truck that old, I suggest you do them all at the same time. You'll need a special tool called a ball joint fork. You remove the cotter pin on the nut that holds the ball. Then you position the fork tool in between the ball joint and the arm it is attached to and hit it with a hammer until the ball joint separates from the arm. Now unscrew the joint from the adjusting tube and replace the joint. Be careful when screwing the new joint into the adjusting tube. count the number of threads that were inside the tube on the old joint and match that number when installing the new joint. Now push the joint back into the control arm and tighten the nut. Put in a new cotter pin to keep the nut from turning. After you've done all the joints , drive the truck for about 50 miles or so then have a front end alignment so your tires won't wear unevenly or if the truck steers to the right or left when you let loose of the steering wheel while moving.

How to replace ball joints

the lower ball joint is pressed into the lower control arm. You will need a ball joint press to remove and install the ball joint. The other option is to replace the lower control arm.

Some parts store will have presses for loan. You will have to check around and see if any in your area have these. If you can't find one you could always pull the control arm and bring it to a shop or machine shop and have them swap the ball joint.

Its a pretty simple procedure.

1. remove the wheel
2. remove the pinch bolt that secures the knuckle to the ball joint.
3. separate the lower control arm from the knuckle.
4. remove snap ring from the ball joint (if it has one)
5. use a ball joint press to press out the old ball joint.
6. press in the new ball joint.

if you don't have a press than you can remove the lower control arm by following steps 1-3 above. then remove the bolt from the front bushing. Remove the stamped steel skid pan from the sub frame. Remove the rear lower control arm bushing mounting bolts.

If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.

Do Buick lesabre 1993 have rear ball joints, and if soo, how do you tell if it is bad, and how would you go about replacing it.. Thank you

YES. jack the car up and shake the wheel side to side. if the ball joint is bad the wheel will feel loose. to replace , you remove the tire, brakes,and unbolt the strut. then you separate the ball joint from the spindle, then press the old joint out of the control arm and then press the new one in . reassembly in reverse procedure and then have the car aligned.

How to change upper and lowwer ball joints

the upper ball joints are less complicated , safely jack up trucks front end and support on the proper weight rated jack stands, place jack stands under lower control arm , remove wheel , locate the upper ball joint shaft and caslte nut, remove the cotter pin retainer and disgard for anew cotter pin on assembly., loosen the castle nut but not all the way just yet, some persons like to use a ball joint fork, so if your going back with new joints then by all means use a fork toll to separate the control arm from the ball joint shaft, a couple of solid hits should bust it loose, with the joint loose from its seat go ahead and remove the nut all the way... if yours ball joint is attached to control arm with bolts tehn remove mounting bolts ,R&R old with new joint and reinstall in reverse order of disassembly.

Lower ball joint is more difficult and also more dangerous because of coil spring has stored energy in it's compressed state, you will need a coil spring compression tool, to do this job, it's best on your first time to have supervision from a qualified experienced suspension and steering technician for this reason I will not explain this procedure not knowing your level of expertise...

Instructions needed--To help me replace my CV joint and my Ball Joints

the ball joints arent hard to do at all all you have to do is take the front tires off and you will see the ball joints as soon as you do this. then there is a nut on the bottom of the ball joint, remove it. then where the ball joint assembly connects to the tie rod mark where the end of the nut is with a sharpie. then loosen the compression nut that holds the ball joint then use a large wrench to loosen the ball joint assembly. then take off the old ball joint and replace it wit the new one lining up the backside of the compression nut with the mark you made with the marker then tighten. then put the bolt on the bottom of the ball joint assembly back in to the hole where you removed it then tighten snugly and put your tire back on and you are finished and then do the same on the other side
