I just recently bought two ball joints for my cts, but I wanted to know if the replacement job is something that can be done by myself or would if be better to take it to a shop to have worked on. Most shops I went to said it was a lower control arm job rather than replacing the ball joints.

Best just have the shop do it-if you don't have the proper tools needed-

I can get the ball joint press for the job, I just wanted to make sure that the control arm didn't need to be replaced also.
