In-depth, Ultimate guide:

Short, quick version:

Great video! I like the fact that you used hand tools.

Good video! I did this last week. For anyone doing this without air tools, get a can of pb blast for all the nuts that need to be removed. Pretty easy and straight forward job. I just used a hammer to pound out the old ball joint and then I used a press to put the new one in.

Thanks! I try to use tools most people have so that anyone can follow along and do the job themselves!

A big breaker bar also helps a lot!
