You would have an easier time changing out the whole control arm, you can get them on eBay for about 30 bucks a side.... i had to do that on my car... otherwise you have to get a ball joint puller... you can change the whole control arm in about 15 minutes and you only need a few different wrenches

Clean, then spray the area around the ball joint stud in the knuckle with penetrating oil a few days before starting the job. This will make removal of the stud from the knuckle much easier.

Tools required: (2) 14mm wrenches and a ball joint press, available for rental (usually free, with a deposit) at many auto parts stores

1. Remove the 14mm nut and bolt holding the joint in the knuckle.2. Pry the control arm down to pull the ball joint stud out of the knuckle. Note that this may require quite a bit of effort.3. Using a ball joint press, press the joint out through the bottom of the control arm.4. Press the new joint into the control arm, securing it with the circlip usually provided with the ball joint.5. Push ball joint stud back into the bottom of the knuckle.6. Secure the ball joint stud using the new 14mm nut and bolt usually provided with the ball joint.

When turning right knocking noise come from your constant velocity joint is it the right side or left side of the front of the car that the is coming from?

Turning right loads the left front wheel of the vehicle, so if you hear the knock when you turn right the bad CV joint is on the left, and vice versa.
