Changing ball joints
So I have never actually attempted to change ball joints or axel universals .... Was just curious if there are any threads out there with tricks to do it. I've heard it's a pain. But thought I could read up on it

Plan some time for the job like a full day at least. When you get your parts ask about a ball joint press to rent most parts houses have them available. And then have some patience, but the good thing is there are times during the job you can vent a little with a BFH and hurt anything.

FYI I find Googling what you want to do is a big help. There are a lot of videos on the internet that are invaluable.I have been working on cars for40+ years and I sttill find these things helpful.
Good Luck
