    you have to remove control arms and use a hydraulic press with adapters to remove/install new ball joints, not hard to do but most people dont have access to a press.so they take them to a machine shop and have them do it usually doesnt cost much.

    Are outer balljoints IX specific?

    Trying to fix my friends IX because the right outer balljoint had failed. He ordered the balljoint from a local auto parts store and the stud on the ball is too small. Its also a 19mm nut vs. The 22mm I removed. Was he given a non IX balljoint?
Working...
