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.

You can't service the lower ball joints by themselves. You must replace the entire lower control arm.
