RE: [DMCForum] Lower ball joint replacement

You have to compress the spring and move other stuff anyway, so all that
remains is the bolt holding the lower arm on, right?  Well, also the sway
bar but you could swap the bushings as well if needed.

If you do one side you should go ahead and do the other.

Subject: [DMCForum] Lower ball joint replacement

I need to replace a lower ball joint and want to take on this project 
myself instead of having a mechanic do it. I'm familiar with the process 
and all, but was wondering if anybody has done it with the lower control 
arm still attached to the D. I can rent a ball joint press to remove the 
old one and press in the new one, but I'm not sure if it will fit in the 
area with the knuckle still attached at the upper ball joint. Removing the 
lower control arm for clearance is a lot more work I would like to avoid if 
I can.

So if you've done it, any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
