      With reference to your inquiry on the Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint - part# DW-K8411, you would need jack, wheel-wrench, socket wrench, slotted screwdriver and drill. Place a jack under the Explorer and raise it up. Use a wheel-wrench to remove the nuts from the Explorer's wheel. Remove the wheel from the Explorer. Place a supporting device such as a floor jack underneath the control arm of the Explorer. Remove the brake caliper's two mounting bolts with a socket wrench. Disconnect the brake caliper's electrical connector and remove it from the Explorer. Remove the Explorer's brake disc by pulling it off. Remove the brake disc splash cover by uninstalling its two securing bolts. Use a slotted screwdriver to pry off the Explorer's tie-rods from the control arm. Remove the cotter pin and nut from the lower ball joint with a socket wrench. Use a ball joint fork to pry out the lower ball joint. Install the replacement lower ball joint and secure it by reinstalling the cotter pin and the nut.
