we just did this at 132000 miles.they should be pressed out (and new ones back in) but found, after getting a quote to have the work done at a shop (nearly 900.00!)that we purchased the parts AND a press to do it ourselves still saving 450.00 after all was said & done! took my husband and son about three hours with the added bonus of having added a press to their tool collection! time is money, we are well aware as we are trades people, and this was a deal no matter how you slice it!

The ball joints must be pressed out of the control arms using a ball joint press. This is most easily done with the control arms removed from the truck. If you do not have access to a ball joint press, it may be best to purchase new control arms with ball joints preinstalled. This will also give you new control arm bushings which is good for ride and handling. Aftermarket adjustable upper control arms are available allowing for correct wheel alignment which may not always be possible using OE style arms.
