replace them when the have play. When replacing them, it is wise to not use a torch on certain ball joints as they will explode.

Some basic things about ball joints, by Vertebrate
from the spindle. Sometimes you need a ball joint separator to do that part of the job.

My suggestion is to ask "How do you replace ball joints on a "Year, Make, Model"? And hopefully someone has answered the question for that specific vehicle and year.
