Ball joints

Going to change out my ball joints today anyone done it before? Is it hard? What will I need besides the ball joint press? Thanks

Its not real hard to do, the best advice I can give you is when you crack the nut loose that keeps the ball joints threaded to the tie rod ends don't turn it just crack it loose so you can unthread your old ones and put your new ones on and re-tighten the nut. This way you don't change your alignment.

It's not hard with the right tools, but it isn't fun. I just did upper and lower ball joints on a 1998 Grand Marquis and an explorer. The ball joints on my 94 Mustang weren't bad, but once again, not something I enjoy doing.
