Unless you have a press at home you would find replacing the inner bushes a little daunting.
Personally, I would be taking it to a mechanic and have him do it, you will also need a wheel alingment after it.
Some advice, buy only GENUINE Ford ball joints, part number BA 3395 A $57.50 each.

you could do some of the work yourself, removing the control arm and taking that to the mechanic/suspension place will save a bit of money.

Who makes the factory ones papa smurf ? i've had heaps of dramas with motorcraft ( i think ?) ones. I would sugest factory ones also. cheap ones don't last.

The ones we sell are a modified one that is used from a BA Falcon. Ours are made for Ford only.
A bit like the Ball joints.

Bit of a threadmine, but what about TRW ball joints, are they any good?
