Newb replacing ball joints
2001 Ford Ranger Edge
3.0L V6 (standard, no flex)
My ball joints are shot. I'm an enthusiastic DIYer, but without a whole lot of experience. I've searched the forums on ball joint replacements and it seems pretty straight forward (I figure if I can replace the clutch slave cylinder myself, I can handle this one, I hope.)
I've gone through the forums and rock auto catalog and I've come up with this:
MOOG Part # K8710T
Frt Susp; Upper; RH; RWD; w/torsion bar Susp.; Problem Solver; part of 2 piece design arm with ball joint
MOOG Part # K8708T
Frt Susp; Upper; LH; RWD; w/torsion bar susp.; Problem Solver; Incl. bushings
I have a question on the bottoms, I see 2 parts listed that are similar, but it mentions the ID of the control arm. I have no clue which one I need.
???MOOG Part # K8695T
Frt Susp; Lower; RWD; w/torsion bar susp.; Problem Solver
2 * $31.00 = $62.00
???MOOG Part # K8695T006
Frt Susp; Lower; RWD; w/Torsion Bar Susp.; Problem Solver; oversized ball joint; fits control arm with 1.749 in. to 1.753 in. I.D.
2* $35.00 = $70.00
Which one of those 2 do I need? And do I need anything else to do this job besides a ball joint push tool and a 6 pack of beer?
