Factory ball joints are rivetted into the control arm Replacements are
available (third party) to bolt in..
The book says to remove the lower control arm. On the right side that
is easy. On the left it is NOT. One of the retaining bolts hits the
transmission so the sub frame needs to be dropped. NOT A NICE JOB. On
mine I cut the head of that bolt off and pulled the bolt out from
below and replaced the bolt head side down. You SHOULD be able to
remove the ball joint with the arm still in place. I had to remove
mine because the inner bushings were shot.
