Raise vehicle, and position safety stands under frame. Remove wheel.
Remove shock absorber and coil spring.
Remove brake caliper retainer and brake caliper. Support caliper aside.
Disconnect ball joint.
Remove pivot bolts and control arm.
Support control arm in vise.
Using Ball Joint Wrench (C-3561 ), unscrew ball joint from control arm.
