Replacing Lower Ball joints, 94 Chevy 1500


Step 2: Getting down to it

When lifting your vehicle, give yourself plenty of room. The ball joint press will require a little more than a foot under the control arm.  I HIGHLY recommend the use of jack stands for this job, because there is a lot of pushing, pulling, and hammering.

Most cars I’ve done this to didn’t require the removal of the tie rod end or upper control arm unless i was replacing the upper ball joint as well. On this one, the upper ball joints are new so all I removed where the brakes.
