SOURCE: upper & lower Ford Ranger ball joints replacement

Approx.$250 in parts & rest is labor. Probably 3 to 4 hrs labor at most, even at 5 hrs labor, that's $100/hr labor. It must include alignment after the repairs, correct? Not sure what your going rate for labor is in your area. Probably wouldn't hurt to call around for a second opinion& estimate just to be sure.

SOURCE: Upper and lower ball joint replacement

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...

The ball joints on both 2wd and 4wd upper are pressed in you need to remove snap ring and using a hammer pop out the old one out this is after you seperate the upper arm from the spindle. To install the new ball joint you should use a ball joint press that you can rent at most autoparts shops

I have excess tire wear mostly on left steer wearing the inside of the tire. this has happened to three sets of tires I also had an allignment done


Things that will tear the tires up in short order. Inner and outer tie rods, ball joints, struts/ upper ball joints( you have upper ball joints) Lower control arm bushings, bent frame, and a bad wheel bearing. Every one of these should have been caught by the alignment shop. If you replace the parts your self. Change them all. You already saved tons by doing it your self. Let me know. I will let you know how to align any vehicle by eye and test driving.

How to replace lower ball joint on 1991 chevy 1500 4/4


The lower ball joint on a car is located between the steering knuckle and the lower control arm. It, along with the upper ball joint, allows the steering knuckle to pivot from left to right, turning the wheels while still allowing the front suspension to compress and absorb the impact of traveling over potholes and speed bumps.

Do I replace the whole upper control arm or press new ball joint, also do I index the arm before removeall or can I just replace the arm.


Although you never said what model, 2 or 4 wheel drive and the engine size, I looked around and found this.
Both 2 & 4 wheel drive take the same ball joint &/or upper control arm. You can opt to do what ever is money wise or easier for you. Auto-zone carries both. You can press a new one in for about 30 bucks or replace the arm with the ball joint for 104. Auto-zone will lend you the press for no charge if you buy the part there. And as far as indexing, yes always. Although anytime front end components are changed a front wheel alignment should be done. The bushing bolts are your Camber adjustments.

Describe your replace front passenger side cv joint 1998 4wd chevy silverado 1500 Problem my front passenger side cv joint is making extremely loud noise, especially while turning. How much can I expect...


CV halfshaft will run you $75 at local autoparts store. Shop labor varies from shop to shop as well as their expertise.
The brake caliper has to be pulled, lower shock bolt removed, upper and lower ball joint seperated (book will say only one but it is not true) and steering knuckle and axle nut removed. CV joint simply unbolts at differential output flange.

2007 chevy silverado steering shudder over bumps


Are the wheel lug nuts tight? Jack up the front end and wiggle each wheel to check for loose wheel bearings. If the truck has a lot of miles, the upper and especially the lower ball joints may be worn enough to cause problems. With the wheels back on the ground, have someone rock the steering wheel back and forth slowly while you watch each tie rod end for looseness. If the left wheel moves before the right one does, there is play somewhere in the linkage between the wheels.

Jack up the car remove wheel remove brake caliper and remove rotor rent a ball joint press remover and installer tool (at schucks you get money back when you bring it back) if it's 4 wheel drive you will have to remove the axle shaft next pull the snap ring off on the top side and put tool on the lower tie rod end and press out, next do the top press out top joint next sand ball joint sockets so it is clean lube with WD-40 next press in top ball joint and then lower ball joint.

I think the lower ball joints when removing will give you easier access to the top. I would suggest going to the local parts store for a print out of the procedure to be on the safe side.
