Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited
The upper ball join as well as the lower ball joint (1994 Explorer 4 Wheel Drive with the Manual Locking Hub.)
Ball joints are pressed in. Upper ball joint also has and eccentric to the stud which is not threaded.
The lower ball joint has pressure threaded nut. The 4 wheel drive axle has to come out and you need a ball joint press tool to remove and install (Cost of Tool $695 - Snap on Sears 295.) And once you do that you need an alignment. To remove the axle, you need to remove the wheel hub, which can be frozen from rust build up, and you need to disconnect the boot underneath about midway on the axle, this axle is spline and also goes into the short transfer case axle.
Now unless you know what you are doing, I sugges you send it to be done.

The easiest way is too remove the whole knuckle and remove the joint on a bench. The Ball Joint is in the knuckle, not in the lower control arm. Try to not break pinch bolt on lower strut clamp. Hope this helps.. :-) Cobra

To perform the following procedure, the lower control arm must be removed from the vehicle. Refer to Removal And Installation for that procedure.
NOTE: When installing ball joint in lower control arm, position the ball joint in control arm so notch in ball joint stud is in the direction shown. This will ease assembly of the ball joint to the steering when installing pinch bolt.
CAUTION: Do not use an arbor press to install the sealing boot on the ball joint. Damage to the sealing boot will occur if excessive pressure is applied to the sealing boot when it is being installed.
CAUTION: A replacement ball joint is not pre-lubricated. Properly lubricate the replacement ball joint using Mopar Multi-Mile grease or an equivalent. Lubricate ball joint after seal boot is installed but prior to top of seal boot being pushed down below notch in ball joint stud. Air must vent out of the seal boot at notch when grease is pumped into ball joint, failure to do so will balloon and damage seal boot. Do not over grease the ball joint, this will prevent the seal boot from pushing down on the stud of the ball joint.
CAUTION: After the ball joint is properly greased, clip the end of the grease fleeing off below the hex. The ball joint seal boot is non-purgeable and further greasing is not required and can result in damage to the seal boot.
