Replacing Ford Ranger Ball Joints




What do you think about this video?

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.

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.

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

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: 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.

conan6868: I've done mine on a 95 ranger. Was a learning experience. Making everything greasable is a good idea

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

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 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.

serama555: indeed it is. i wish these uppers were

saknk1: dude you have a thing for working in the dark ,lol

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: That's because the night time.. is the right time! hahaha

Branden Hennessee: How bout some tj progress?

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

serama555: 0:29 you can see the big clamp I made hanging on tub. I'm waiting for a strong helper to help hold everything in place while I clamp that warped floor section down and weld it.
