you have a live axle its different than a PVH system.
To the OP, if you want to save yourself time, don't bother taking the PVH hub off. When i did mine, i pulled my front axles, got a BFH (big ****in hammer) and hit the old ball joint off. to install the new one you'll need to press it in. You can rent a press for them at your local Autozone or Advance Auto Parts. Luckily, my friend whos a Ford tech had one and brought it over.
a picture from when they got done.
pulled the axle out with the whole knuckle, did the balljoint and reinstalled. you don't need to remove the hub that way and it will save you time.
