Am replacing ball joint - is it spring loaded etc.

NO the spring is on the strut the only tension you will havt to deal with is when trying to pull down on the lower A arm to remove ball joint stud from the steering knuckle. the front sway bar goes in the underside of the A arm and this causes upward tension on the A arm.

Cutlass Supreme new front wheel bearing repeatedly goes out

You may have pulled the inner tri-pod joint out of the cv shaft and that will make noise. Is the bearing really bad? Does it turn freely?

Popping sound on diver front tire

I dont work as a car mechanic but have some limited knowledge,,,, Most of the time that you get popping noises in the front end (usually while turning) it is the CV joint,,, the boot drys and cracks and dirt, sand and grit take out the joint, so if you replaced the joint and the boot and lubed it up,,, could be the tire is not completely round(was told my rear tires were shaped like eggs by one shop) other than that, you have to limit it down to the when and wheres... like when does it happen, how fast are you going, stopping,,turning, braking,,, out of gear(in nuetral..etc) then I think the answer will be easily to tell.

Shaking while braking

If you put new rotors on and used the old pads that could be your problem. You never put new rotors on, with out new pads even when the old pads look new. Also just because the rotors are new does not mean thery are not warped. I have done a lot of break jobs where i have had to take the rotors back off and had them turned because they were warped right out of the box.

Cv joint replacement

Remove the tire and tighten 2 lugnuts onto the brake rotor. remove the axle nut in center of the brake rotor and drive the axle out of the spindle. If the ball joint is original, you have to grind out the rivets on the lower control arm. Remove and replace the ball joint with the hardware included with the ball joint. Next, pry-unsnap the axle end from the transaxle with a prybay and drive-snap in the new axle shaft into the transaxle. reverse to assemle, align front end and wholla! your done. 1 hour,15 min. $115.00 to do it yourself.
