RE: How To Replace Ball Joints?
Ball joints are fun. If you got a 2WD truck, I guess you can say, "Hammer time." I've yet to have to do my uppers but to remove the lower ball joints your just going to need a ratchet, some sockets, a ball joint install tool kit, and a 5lb hammer. Not too difficult, but be sure that you check all of your ball joints before replacing all of them because the uppers don't go as fast as the lowers, at least not on my truck. How did you check all of them? I've learned to check them by getting under the car and trying to squeeze them with some 20" channel locks to see if the ***** are loose inside the sockets and by having someone turn the steering wheel rapidly from left to right as I watched for excessive place with a flashlight.
