Copy

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.
