The lower balljoint is pressed into the lower control arm.To remove the balljoint,you need to rent or buy a balljoint press kit.It makes it alot easier.The balljoint is connected to the spindle by a bolt and nut.Once it is removed you should be able to separate the Ball joint and spindle.The control arm is connected to the frame by two bolts to the crossmember.You may want to remove the brake caliper and hang it off to the side with some wire.remove the rotor to give you a better view.I suggest that you get a chiltons manual or equivelent to give you the finer details of this job.Be sure to use jackstands and work safely!!

I had to replace the right lower ball joint . I suggest you get the lower control arm I paid about 100 for one it has the ball joint already pressed in . and I did it with basic tools and a friend in about an hour .

You will need to remove the tire and wheel from your Oldsmobile. Remove the retaining not on top of the ball joint. Pound the ball joint out. Reverse the process to install your new lower ball joint.

Replacing the lower ball joint on a Chrysler Sebring is not the easiest thing to do. The best option for replacing it is to seek out a chrysler dealership or go to a professional mechanic that knows the specific car model and have done this type of work before.

Unless common practice has changed, you should have to press the lower ball-joint down through the bottom of the lower A-arm to remove the joint.

First you need to jack the vehicle up and support it on stands, then remove the tire. Remove the torsion bar and disconnect the lower shock mount, and remove the stabilizer bar connecting rod from the lower link. Loosen the lower ball joint nut, and use a ball joint separator to separate the ball joint from the lower link, then disconnect the tension rod from the lower link. Remove the front lower link pivot nut and push the stud out, then remove the torque arm from the frame. Remove the ball joint by removing the retaining bolts and install the new one, I suggest you replace the bushing as well.

- Remove wheel - remove caliper and brake pads - remove rotor - you should use a ball-joint separator (a.k.a. pickle-fork) to remove the ball-joint otherwise it is a very difficult process.

Not so easy.This is pressed into the lower control arm.So :Jack and support carRemove lower ball joint to upright nut.Separate ball joint from upright. Usually with a hammer and suspension fork.In some cases there is a spot weld that needs to be ground off in place of the snap ring.Remove the snap ring that retains the joint into the lower control arm.Use your portable ball joint and suspension press to remove and install the replacement joint.Assembly is reverse of disassembly.

For the lower ball joint, remove the lower control arm and the ball joint seal. Press the ball joint from the control arm. Press the new ball joint into the lower control arm ensuring it is fully seated, install a new seal and the lower control arm.

The "v" belt is for the air conditioning. The serpentine belt is for the power steering and alternator.

It's roughly only $20.00 more to replace the whole lower control arm that the ball joint sits in. It will save you alot of grief of pressing out old joint and pressing in the new one.

jack up and support vehicle ,remove tire on the side in which you are changing the axle, remove axle nut, remove lower ball joint nut, separate, lower ball joint from spindle,remove lower strut bracket from control arm, after you have supported the spindle off to one side, take a small pry bar and place it between the inner c-v joint and the transaxle housing and pry out

I'm assuming that you are talking about the front lower ball joint as they are the most common. You remove the tire then remove the axle nut in the center of the rotor it is a should be a 32mm socket. removw the lower ball joint nut, it is a 17mm socket then with a ball hammer hit the metal casing were the ball joint goes through the lower control arm, do not hammer on the ball joint itself! it will change tone when the socket pops. when it pops pick up the assembly by the rotor and remove the lower ball joint arm from the lower control arm and remove the axle from the hub assembly. there is a retainer clip on the lower part of the ball joint that you will need to remove you will need a pair of snapring pliers for this. after removing the snapring you need to hammer the ball joint up and out of the hub. Just do these instructions backwards to install. Good luck If it's the UPPER ball joint, the whole control arm has to be replaced (the ball joint is made into the control arm, and it's non replaceable). Remove cotter pin and nut from ball joint. Get a big, heavy hammer, and hit the spindle as close to the ball joint as possible (you may have to whack it a few times). That will break the ball joint loose from the spindle. Once is loose, remove the bolts that attach the control arm to the body.

It depends on what year, make and model vehicle you have.

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1999 Chevy Lumina. Remove the nut on the top of the ball joint. Pound the ball joint out with a hammer. Reverse the process to install the new ball joint.

The ball joint and control arm are 1 piece so you have to buy the whole assembly. Ball joint is not replaceable on its own. I paid about 120 for assembly. http://www.net-ebooks.com

Jack up the side you want to replace and put a jack stand under it. Remove the ball joint clamp bolt and nut. Remove the bolt completely. Remove the 2 bolts holding the ball joint to the control arm and take it off.

is it 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive? two wheel drive needs to be pressed out and a new joint pressed in. four wheel drive- some say to remove the drive axle, not necessary. with upper joint removed from upper control arm remove the spindle nut and remove spindle from rotor and steering knuckle (you may have to bang and pry very hard). with drive axle now mobile remove lower nut on ball joint. bang with pickle fork to release from lower control arm. remove upper four bolts or drill out rivots and replace with new ball joint.

Raise this corner of the vehicle at the frame. Remove the wheel and support the lower control arm. Remove brake caliper and rotor. Unplug ABS sensor if so equipped. If T-10 (4WD) not S-10 (RWD): Remove CV axle nut at hub. Loosen upper ball joint nut. Separate upper ball joint from spindle using large hammer to knuckle or ball-joint fork. Remove upper ball joint nut, then push upper control arm up away from spindle. Loosen lower ball joint nut, then separate from spindle. Remove lower ball joint nut. If T-10: lower spindle and remove from vehicle. If S-10: raise lower control arm enough to give you working room. Use a drill or chisel or grinder to remove four rivets holding ball joint to control arm. Secure new joint to control arm using supplied hardened steel bolts and nuts and lock washers. Continue reassembly as reverse of disassembly. Align wheels, as the alignment is now incorrect.
