the only thing is. i already know how to change the hubs and pull that off what im needing to know is about the spacers on the lower control arm and how exactly do i take the ball joints out and back on. im thinking ill have to take it to a parts store and have them pressed on and off??
that I don't know I have not had to do that yet
you can use the suspension load in your favor to help knock the ball joints out. I've never used a press just a lil 2 lb sledge. Just be careful not to damage the threads. And be sure to have the truck suspended at the frame and a jack under the LCA to ease it down. Should come with install instructions and there is bound to be a how to here somewhere to get a lil more info
