      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

      good part does the job only thing in that the old ones may be a pain to press out. but with the tool we where able to get booth sides out a new upper control is over 100$ I think. also like the other person said the boot in not well made a does not seal well

        Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

        At less than half the price of quality get this if money is tight. The boot is junk, but if you baby it you can keep it together thru the install. No grease fitting, basically a throw-away part but its less than $20 so... to remove the old joint you may want to rent the tool and use a ratchet strap or something to pull upper arm down for tool clearance(I had my struts removed for replacement)

            I ended up having to buy new upper control arms instead (they include new upper ball joints). I wasn't able to press out the ball joints in the old control arms and believe me, I tried. The good thing about this is that now I have new upper ball joints AND new upper control arms.

                • Q:

                  I purchased this part to replace over the weekend. According to a Ford tech. I spoke with you cannot replace only the ball joint but must replace the entire upper control arm. According to your parts listing both Drive Works and Moog make replacement ball joints. I need to know if the joint alone is replaceable or not? Please advise.

                    Hi Paul, great question! You can very well replace just the suspension ball joint. As you are in need for the replacement of suspension ball joint, the entire upper control arm assembly may be on the verge of failure and needs attention too. So, it is recommended to replace as an assembly in order to avoid intermittence.
