Replacing Ford Ranger Ball Joints




What do you think about this video?

enterprise59: Mine is an 03 Ranger Edge, and my passenger side control arm is NOTHING like that!.. odd.

isaac jimenez: Thanks man you helped me. 

Kevin Hardesty: Was this guy high? For most people they wanna know how the ball joint press is setup for installing and removal. Skipped alot of steps. Dude sounded burned the freak out. Also if you're trying to make a video make sure you have sufficient light. Don't start at 8 o'clock at night get out of bed before 2 pm hippie. 

biaenando03: I have 1998 mazda b2500 do i have to replace the whole upper arm or can i just replace the ball joint in it..? Thanks great video btw

Nikki Boles: are you pressing the lower ball joint from the bottom or the top when you replace it?

JeffTheHokie: I have a 97 with a 2.3.  I don't see a control arm on it.  The upper and lower are inches apart.

lilfunny1234: to replace the lower ball joint do you have to remove the upper ball joint?

mac777daddy: Can you press in and out the lower ball joint without an airgun?  I need to do this to my truck but a little scared of that bottom ball joint and do not have an airgun.

MigityMigityMike: Thanks for the video...it helped a lot!!!

mark wilder: I need to do my old work truck. 01 ranger 2wd with 200k+ miles on it 3.0L. Do you recommend any particular brand of parts? I'm trying to get the best bang for my buck... a lot of online forums say use ford or moog only as others wont last nearly as long. Great video. best one on this topic on you tube. Thanks.

serama555: yeah torque specs are important lol I'm glad this video helped you out :) thanks for the comment!

TrippmyT: Thanks for posting this video. I was able to follow it exactly and successfully replace my upper control arms and lower ball joints. I was able to knock the old lowers out with 3 hits with the hammer. Important to check the torque recommended for both parts. Thanks again.

Rich Mel: My biggest problem was tring to get the upper ball joint into the knuckle..it will not go in..that's what she said...

serama555: No I think its pretty different, I dont think it even has the A arms. The split front axle ford did for years is weird... but the ball joints (i think) will press in an out like these ones.

Honda759Racing: Would this be the same type of work for a 4x4 1997 ranger?

serama555: not sure yet im running around trying to get ready for winter... there just isn't enough hours in a day!

MrComaToes: LOL... well, it sure edited well! We've all had those days, but it all went together in the end, and that's the the only thing that counts!

serama555: yeah thats because I didn't show breaking the new lower with the press then snapping a grease fitting off in the replacement... crap luck lol =/

serama555: indeed it is. i wish these uppers were

MrComaToes: Good job... made short work of it!
