First of all you will need a balljoint press and a hub nut socket then you just have to remove the lockout and hub to pull out the axle to get to the ball joint and you alway replace upper and lower at the same time.

How to get the camber to seperate from the ball joint on 1993 ford f150 4x4


I think you want to remove the upper ball joint???? If this is the case it is not easy. You cant remove the upper with out removing the lower at the same time. On the upper there is a camber adjustment sleeve. The sleeve is removed gently from the top. But the upper ball joint needs to be loosened first. The service details are a bit different from 4x4 or just rwd. We will need more info on what it is you are trying to fix or replace. The upper "camber" sleeve is a real pain to get out with out removing both the up and lower ball joint studs. I hope this is some what usefull. No matter what take your time and post more info. Be specific on what you need to do................. Dan...........

I need to change the lower ball joint on my 89 f150 4x4 how do i do it


remove brakin system(caliper pads rotor) then disconnect outer tie rod, remove cotter pins on both ball joint nuts and remove nuts, then separate hub from i-beam, on the bench remove spring clip holing ball joint and press out, press in new joint and install hub in reverse order of dissassembly, apply grease to axle regrease bearings and caliper sliders, you will need a ball joint separator and a ball joint press, use new cotter pins

1993 f-150 4x4 very hard to turn to the right. I've replace the steering box, pump, and front axle u-joints. When it's off the ground it steers easy. Back on the ground, Hard??


Either ball joints or alignment come to mind.
Ball joints will often bind and grab in one direction but not necessarily in the other, when they are really bad.
You don't notice it jacked up because the control arms pivot down to put you on a different location on the ball joint.
You should be able to see which side and whether upper or lower, by seeing the pressure causing flex and jerks.
Although it is usually either one with a rubber rip or the lowers.
But alignment can do it also, especially of jacked up.
The camber or caster can be too great on one side, where turning the steering has to lift the whole truck up on one side more than the other, or it can strongly pull to one side.

How to re-install lower ball joints on 2001 ford f150 4x4.


A "ball joint seperator" and a "ball joint press" is what you will need to do this. A castle nut will be holding the ball joint in place, remove the pin, drop the joint, press in the new one.

Remove in this order: wheel, loosen the 4 lower ball joint set bolts, cotter pin and nut from tie rod, tie rod from ball joint bracket, ball joint from lower control arm, 4 lower ball joint set bolts, ball joint from suspension. Install is reverse but don't tighten the 4 lower ball joint set bolts.

torque is as follows:
ball joint to control arm- 112 ft-lbs
Tie rod nut- 67 ft-lbs
lower ball joint set bolts- 83 ft-lbs
remember to use a new cotter pin

Proper methods and safeguards for replacing lower ball joints on a 96 4x4 blazer.


They are riveted into the lower control arm. You can chisel them out OR...if u have air tools...u can grind the rivets off, them punch them thru the bottom of the lower control arm. Make sure you place GOOD, STRONG jackstands under the control arm. I believe that is a torsion bar suspension so be very careful. You'll also need to pop the upper ball joint out of the spindle to change the lower ball joint. Good luck.
