Remove the nut. Then use a hammer and hit the spindle where the ball joint goes threw it. It will release with few few good whacks. Then you need a ball joint removal kit to R&R the ball joint. You can rent these at parts stores with a deposit. (You get your money back). Check them with the parts guy first. If something is missing or broken when you take it back, they can make you pay. With the kit, you need tools to use with it. Breaker bar and a socket that will fit the bolt in the kit.

Removing Ball joints


You'll need the repair manual for this. There are upper and
lower ball joints front and rear. You also have to deal with
a number of suspension components to access the ball
joints. Lower ball joints can be replaced by pressing old
out and new in using a large socket to match circumference
of the ball joint.

Ball Joints


I highly recommend that you have a press available, they dont screw in unfortunatly.
To change uper ball joints; Remove tire Pull codder pin and remve nut Tap ball joint out of wheel/ brake assembly Remove upper control arm compleatly Use Press to push old ball joint out of controll arm.
A torch may be nessisary to heat controll arm. Press new ball joint all the way into controll arm Reinstall every thing Get a professional front end alignment. 

Good lcuk and hope this helps.

Hi, trying to replace an upper ball joint on a 2005 Dodge Stratus The ball joint is a press in but is there a snap ring..... holding it into the control arm? I can't get this thing to budge.


very often when working with press in ball joints you have to heat them up with a torch get them to around 750 degrees or more and then beat the snap ring out literly with a small chisel (punch).
