Did this video help you?

TRON ZERO: Goodness gracious. Wouldnt a rubber mallet be god enough to use instead of the hammer? Feels much better knowing i wont break anything. 

ma va: nice video , and information, thanks

Jascinto Green: Can I do it with just a normal heavy duty jack ?

Billy Correll: Tron a rubber or hard mallet wouldn't work for removing the joint. It is a very tight press fit. Usually you would use a press to remove the joint but pounding with a hammer is used a lot. I am going to replace my F150 joints in a few days and I purchased one to the tools that is shown in the video. 

Richard M: I had my ball joints replaced, both sides upper and lower, in May of last year after I notice the right front tire was cupping on the on the outside. A year earlier I was in reverse and turned the wheel to the left and heard a loud pop, I now think I know what it was. I heard the same pop about two weeks ago and am now noticing that the same rough ride and the possible beginnings of cupping on the same right tire. I have no idea about cars except tho change the oil, fill the tires and fill it up with gas (petrol), if your reading from England. I was going to try and fix it myself but after watching the video, I better let people who did it last time do it again. But why has it done the same thing so soon?

David Schaum: At 3:22 what size ball joint press adapter are you using? Also what size ball joint separator (Pickle Fork) did you use? Thanks and great tutorial! I'm going to try it myself.

augustusmax Von Bludorf: excellent video very clear video and audio good presentation.

RUBBERGLOVE293: Just what I needed thanks.

JoAnn Grant: Well done. Brief and to the point. Very clear instructions. Thank you!!!

howder1951: Excellent video, one of the best diy vids I have seen, extremely concise and complete in all ways, I will check what else you have on the web. Good job.

John McConnaughy: Very informative video with great shots of the parts and locations. Mechanic is knowledgeable and speaks clearly with authority. One thing that I don't have is a lift and working at stool level is more challenging. All in all very pleased with the time spent watching this show. 

rockd810: Thanks, this is the best explained and easy to follow instructions on Youtube. Keep them coming.

Christopher Skinner: This is an excellent video ... need one of those lifts in my garage!. Suggest adding torque specs on the upper control arm, lower and upper ball joints and wheel bearing nut. Also I have what look to be "shims" on the upper control arm pivot bolt (nut end) and they seem to hold the upper control arm in a fixed position with no adjustment. Since the frame is slotted one must have to use different "shims" to get the alignment correct; no mention of this in the Hayne's manual. My alignment guy's problem ... which will be my pocket problem. Again great job lighting and audio ... real help.

Dusty Snow: good job bro.

Dave Funkhouser: thats the best instruction video this guy is good thanks for taking the time to share

Owen Downer: Great job man. You made it look very easy.

fastodie: So thats whats making one of my companies work truck squeak when you drive it around ! Embarrassing to drive around squeaking ever where lol

Joel Klassen: Wow, what an amazing DIY! I know this must have taken a lot of work, and appreciate you sharing. 

Austin Matthews: Nice video and work area!

Dru Chiusano: Haha now tap the ball joint knuckle...whack whack whack holy crap haha

Johnny Payton: Great job!

melaniew77msn: Great video. You are fast at working, speak clearly and the camera operator was in the right spot to show us what you were doing. Bravo

Dru Chiusano: Haha now tap the ball joint knuckle...whack whack whack holy crap haha

MILTON MOORE: Can you do one for a 97 mustang?

Tim Kloppenberg: It has been twenty years or more since I replaced ball joints. This video was a huge help as I replaced both sides lower ball joints and upper control arms on my 97 F150 4x4 today. Thanks!

ambercrombie789: How long do I have from the time they start squeaking till I am in mechanical trouble from the wear? Dodge Ram 2001

kenjams: Excellent, best explanation of this for me. Thanks bud.

doughboyracing: Very informative and helpful. I just did this to my 2001 F150 Supercrew after getting new tires. 178K miles. Not bad, but I've had a feeling they've been bad for a few months or so. Thanks again, it really helped to see someone doing the exact job I did.

trey bone: i have a 2001 ford expedition that squeaks when i hit a bump turn my wheel an driving slow is this common in ford trucks and should i replace the ball joints or shocks?????

Alberto Rodriguez: is also similar to 1998-2003 Expedition awd/4x4

rahs98991: I have watched a number of these videos on this and you are by far the best out there as most the others have people taking parts off that dont have to be taken apart well done Ihave done so many trucks like this for the same problem Ford had their heads up their ass when the designed these trucks

Dan Nguyen: Good job! I learned a lot watching this!

run8: Thanks! Your video helped me do the repairs to my F-150.

Vincent Sanford: very nice video but no mention of the axleshaft line up

roadragecustoms: @kas0016 Yes, if you have the right adapters. This vid was made before I bought the Ford update kit.

danielh35: You know I had a hard time installing my lower joints. I didn't have a press so I just heated the frame with a blow torch and tapped it with a hammer with no problems.

MrMjsmith626: Sorry about the typo...LOL!. That was suppose to say RACING GREASE.

roadragecustoms: @hoehoerendous It was over a year ago. I really don't remember. Probably 3 hours or more for right & left upper & lower. Keep in mind it takes longer to do when I'm trying to make a video.

roadragecustoms: @kas0016 You need to have them, at least, in the right general area. It is ideal, but not always practical to have the vehicle on the ground when you tighten them. You don't want to have the control arms 90 degrees from where they belong at ride height when you tighten them.

Kelvin Lyons: That was a job done well!

pongaulong83: I'd gladly take any other tips or pointers you might have for my task as well, thanks again.

alfredo banos: very nice ..it seems easy, whwre do i get the special tool?

Jorge Morales: This is the way how to make a tuturial.... thanks.

cdawg4391: I like how the new joints have a grease fitting.

kas0016: Arent you supposed to not tighten bolts for upper control arm until suspension is under load??

decojuicer: Very helpful. Any chance you can be at my house in the next 15 minutes. I can pay in beer and bbq.

Silas: hmmm, this looks easy... not... lol but can this be used also as a guide for a 1999 ford ranger??

Mapp2004: same set up

sparky55s: I could not have finished this job without you. I had to take a sledge to my lower ball joint and could not remove the other part without the pickle fork. thanks again !!

AntiHippie: Turn your goddamn brights off. You're in a subdivision.
