Remove tire, brake caliper and disk. Remove cotter pin and ball joint nut. Break(so to speak) the ball joint from the hub with a pickle fork if it does not separate easily. You'll have to remove the axle nut (36mm deep socket needed) and pull the driveshaft from the hub so that you'll have enough clearant to remove and replace the ball joint. Undo the bolts or chisel out the rivets of the ball joints. Install replacement ball joints and tighten bolts to specs. And 'installation is the reverse of removal' so my retarded haynes manual would say.

I had this problem on my 2000. I lubed all the fittings, especially upper and lower ball joints and the noise went away. Chevy wants you to lube every oil change. If you still hear the noise you'll have to replace. Check the Anti-Sway Bar bushings and where they attach to the A-Arm.
You change the control arms, upper and lower. The ball joints are manufactured into the control arms.
Two. One on each side in the front. There are only lower ball joints on this vehicle. There are no upper ball joints - there are struts instead.
The lower ball joints have to be pressed out. The upper ball joints are part of the control arm, so the complete upper assembly has to be replaced.
