the lower ball joint does not have to be removed at all even tho in top photo the nut is gone.
second photo was all that was left
3 pic was the place the new one will go the next is bearing started and so on the last is a socket i used as my install tool, it worked thats all that matters just dont hit it real hard.
oooo almost forgot if its lifted you will have to raise and lower the control arm to get shaft out, lower to get the end by the spindle out and lift it up so the top will come out from diff i left mine hang there in the strut fork didnt want to take that apart again gives you plenty of room to service the needle bearing <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

K i just did mine tonight in about 2 hours one side but few screw ups like forgeting to put the washer on the axel so had to remove all again to put it in place. Just droped the upper ball joint like said in previous post. Changed all three bearings for 68$ tax in. Gonna go get the bearings for the other side also And do it.

lol..I remember seeing the same washer after finishing...and then thinking....should I?? lol Yes I should.
Also...for putting the needle bearing in i used a piece of 12" 2x2 and banged it softly.
Good pix thnx.

Nice to have it all done now isn't it...

Now I just need to get on that damn lift for my Kia! Damn Rusty Bolts!

I imagine that you guys have done wheel bearings in the past.
Just wanted to add that after doing wheel bearings I like to push and pull on the top of the tire every couple days to check for any kind of play and tighten as needed.
This may be unneeded info, but I thought I would throw it out there.
