Remove wheel hub, remove the 4 bolts holding the ball joint in place, heat it up with a torch, then bash the crap out of with a hammer til the ball joint pops out.

on the upper ball joints just remove the four bolts on the upper control arm and use a picker fork to remove the balljoint from the steering knuckle. for the lower ball joints you have to remove the axle then repeat the same steps for the uppers

If its 2 wheel drive, you will need a press. Those ball joints are pressed into the upper and lower control arms. If it is 4 Wheel drive you need to remove the rivets with either an air chisel or to drill them out.

I've done it on a 1996 ram 1500 it's a pain and you have no choice but to replace both the upper and lower

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.

Look in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

User Avatar

Look where the upper and lower radiator hoses go after they come out of the radiator. There should be a housing on one of the two with 2 or 3 bolts holding it on. Remove the housing and the thermostat should be underneath.

Check your upper and lower ball joints, that's usually the culprit.

I've changed them on my 97 4cyl, almost exact same truck, 2wd. pull off wheels,remove brake pads caliper and rotor, behind metal plate should be 4 bolts on top of ball joint and one below with cotter pin and nut, remove these. next, use ball joint seperator (fork type or auto zone loans out pro kit) to remove ball joints. install new ball joint, reassembly is reverse.

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.

It is inside the upper intake manifold. To get to it you must remove the throttle body, upper intake manifold, and several electrical lines and fuel lines.

Rear wheel drive have upper ball joints, front wheel drive do not. The strut takes the place of the ball joint.

User Avatar

You change the control arms, upper and lower. The ball joints are manufactured into the control arms.

There are many joints present in the body. Some are ball and socket joint, joint between the upper jaw and the lower jaw, joint between the upper jaw and the head, joints in the skull, joints in the fingers, joints between the toes, joint in the wrist,etc.

under the cover in the front, you have to remove the coils in order to get to the plugs the rear is hard to get to sometimes you have to remove the upper intake to get to them good luck

Disconnect the upper and lower joints, put the ring of the lyre on the lower joint, tighten the lyre, reconnect the upper and lower joints.

On a 2000 Lincoln LS : The FRONT suspension is a strut type suspension , so there are ( NO ) upper ball joints

User Avatar

To do so would be a waste of money, replace the upper ball joints first, then have it aligned.
