I going to be replacing these in the next few weeks before I get my new tires and alignment. Any thing I should know about this. It looks pretty easy, but all projects are until you have trouble . Shop wanted 540.00 To do this YIKES ! my cost for parts from BLAU about 100.00 TX.

ball joints

ball joints have a trick to them, unscrew the big nut and put something between that nut and the cv axle housing and the ball joint will pop right out. There's no room in there to use a fork or specialty tool. That's how I did them worked like a champ. Tie-rod ends you can use a specialty tool to pop it out.
