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.

You have to take the control arm and ball joint to a shop and have them pressed together, otherwise it is easier to buy the new control arm with the ball joint already in it.

I have the same problem and the consensus is that it is the lower ball joints. Try to get grease into the lower ball joint (with a pointed applicator) or replace them.

The left CV joint can be replaced on a 1989 Honda Accord by removing the left tire and the moving the brake lines. Next, the ball joint and the tie rod should be removed, which will allow for their to be enough room to use a pry bar against the transmission which will pop out the CV joint.

You can not just change the ball joint , you have to replace the whole lower control arm with ball joint.

The squeak is most likely coming from your upper or lower ball joints. Replace your worn ball joint(s) and that'll fix your problem.

Since it's the lower, I think you can replace just the ball joint. Most of the time the uppers are replaced by replacing the entire arm.
