Hello and thanks for the donation!

To remove your vehicle's ball joints, you must remove the steering knuckle. To do this, follow the instructions below and let me know if you need further assistance with this repair..

Those ball joints can be a real treat to get out. You absolutley do not want to put heat on the ball joint as it can explode. Had it happen in our shop about 7-8 years ago. Lots of shrapnal and blood.
