I was searching rave for ball joint replacement, but nothing came up. I assume they are press fit.

I could only find these special tools, so it sounds kind of difficult without them...

this is how the tires are wearing, mostly on the inside with some feathering. to me this suggest poor camber (ball joints) and toe (tie rods).

Hello Harley,

I ended up changing the following on mine because of a warn Ball joint that caused the track rod to go. Got all the parts from island 4X4:

Driver's side Ball Joint, Track Rod, Tie rod and the Steering Damper.

As for tools, I used the loaner tool from Checker/O'Reillys.

Zubi has an excellent write up on the Ball-joint removal and the rest are pretty straight forward:

Those pictures show the SPX Sevice Solutions special tool, which costs around £600GBP.

I'm thinking you may have a problem with the steering set-up. You can get a complete track-rod and drag link with ball joints for a reasonable amount. Get a good one though, otherwise you'll be back to square one within 6 months. You need at least OEM spec (Lemforder).

go to autozone or checker auto and use their loan a tool kit to press them out. Then reverse the process and press the new ones in. It's pretty simple.
