Can anyone provide feedback on the recomended way of replacing the cross axis ball joint on the left lower control arm of an AU falcon with IRS.

ie. can the replacement be done in the vehicle? Is it a 20 minute job or a 2 hour job. What special tools are needed? Traps and pitfalls etc.

TIA

if it is like the fronts

they need to be pressed out :(

when i did the fronts in mine it would have been only $150 in labour for pedders to pull it apart and put it back together both sides!
