When I did mine, it wasn't nearly as difficult as it appeared. Yes, it's awkward, but Will is totally right to say buy the entire unit. Honestly, it's not worth it to try replacing the ball joint in the link; pitch the whole thing and start new.I need to replace my replace my rear upper ball joint.
This looks like a tough job but I’ve never had stick bolts on my truck before
I’m looking for tips and tricks before I dig in
Put some heat on it (torch) should help to break loose.I have the ball joint with bracket on its way, but last night I thought I would try seeing how stuck the bolts were
The nuts for the bracket came off no problem, but I could not get the balls to budge with my 36 inch breaker bar
