you will have to remove the whole lower control arm and have the old one presed out and the new one pressed in

After U jack the truck up under the COIL spring-WICH U need 2 do 2 relieve the pressure- Then U remove the Spindle THEN with a LARGE Hammer,U beat the Crap out of the ball joint FROM the TOP-U Use a BALL JOINT Press 2 install the NEW Joint-the Press Looks like a Big C Clamp-BUT B sure 2 use JACK STANDS.& the Spring has about 4000 pounds of pressure on it.ASK somebody that has done it B 4.B sure 2 jack it up close 2 the OUTSIDE -CLOSE 2 the LOWER Ball Joint.

lower tank or remove bed of truck, if tank is full you cannot empty with syphon as check ball will not allow it, it is easier to remove bed to gain access and if you have stands you just have to raise it a little.

Personally.. given the worth of a GMC, I would use a stick of dynamite to remove the dash.. or refer the vehicle to the local scrap yard.
