MrShelby2012: I am in process of replacing a broken drivers side CV shaft on a 95 Dodge Caravan.
I am having an issue, when trying to get the lower A-arm ball joint dowel, into the pinch bolt housing. Do I need to jack up the strut or the A-arm, it seems the angle is to severe to allow the dowel to slide up into its position.
1aauto: We currently do not have an auto repair video that covers this particular repair, we'll keep this request in mind in the event that we need to make this repair in the future. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
goatboy150: Would someone here happen to know if I need any job-specific tools to replace a CV axle on one of these trucks? 2002 Sonoma 4X4 (not ZR2). It has a snap-ring on the new one, would just a (gentle) pry bar be sufficient to get the old one out? Any help would be welcome.
David Archuleta: Than you, you've made my attempting this much easier.
joshua lamarche: have to do all 4 ball joints on my 1995 chevy blazer as well as replaced the tie rod ran into some trouble
1aauto: They should install like this video shows.
1aauto: It was worn out. We carry new ones on our website. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Phillip Wilson: Why did you replace the hub?
Robert Littlefoot: do any of the ball joints need to be pressed in i am replacing them on my 2001 chevy s10 long bed pick up truck
rockband144: bell tire. four new front ball joints 704 dollers and thats on a 2002 chevy blazer.
1aauto: Shop rates vary and also depending upon if they run into a snag so unfortunately I would not be able to give you an estimate. Your best bet would be to shop around for a quote from one of your local mechanics.
Dano25840: HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST TO GET DONE?!?!?!?!?
1aauto: We currently do not have an auto repair video that covers this particular repair. If you have a Haynes or Chiltons manual it should be covered in there. You could also join a forum such as S10Planet com There could be a write up by one of the members on the board.
Mario Alan Perez Arreola: i need to replace my control arm bushing on my GMC SONOMA 1998 2 WD any ideas were to find a video??
1aauto: The only other place that I can think of where you may be able to find that part listed is in a service manual for your vehicle. We don't have that information available to us.
MrBillygman: Hey thanks for the great instructional videos. I am doing this project on my 2000 blazer w/4x4 and i noticed the o-ring that you placed on the hub at about 3 min 30 seconds in this video. Only the driver's side had the o-ring when i took the hubs off (probably because the other one had fallen apart). Do you know the size of the o-ring or know a part number so that i can get some new ones? It doesn't even show up on the chevy parts diagrams so the dealership isn't offering much help. Thanks
1aauto: You would so that you can get everything out of your way.
Ger Cal: do I need to remove the hub even if all I'm doing is changing the ball joint?
1aauto: We currently do not have an auto repair video on how to do the upper ball joints. If you have a Haynes or a Chiltons manual they should show you how to do this.
Warnerrobinson80: Can you post a video for the upper ball joint for the same 4wd setup. Or is it basically the same as the lowers. Great videos! Keep it up.
1aauto: Thank you for checking us out. Have a great day!
novasixseven: Its not the same on any s10/blazer/Jimmy. The 2wd have press in lower balljoints, please change your intro
1aauto: The basics should be the same, but some of the steps that needed to remove them may be slightly different.
1aauto: Many times you will fell a vibration in the wheel while on the highway, or when you back up you may hear a clunk noise from the front. We also have this great video that will show you how to inspect them. Hope this helps you out. youtube.com/user/1aauto?feature=mhee#p/search/4/7dNgq_9frNc
RaffNTemp: how do you know when to replace the ball joint?
epiphaknee: Great video! I love your Craftsman jack too!! LOL
axe master: YOU GUYS ROCK! THANKS FOR THE INSTRUCTION!!
OkotOkot: mine wont separate :(
I have the 3 bolts out, but no amount of wrenching/prying will get the hub/bearing to budge off the spindle.
1aauto: Thank you for watching our how to videos. We carry the parts featured in the video on our website 1aauto.com
Roy Lewis: My 98 Sienna Alldata-diy subscription left me feeling about the same. Maybe the other Alldata subscription go further, but their cost is prohibitive for me. The how-to videos from 1AAuto.com are first rate in my book.

1aauto: Thank you for watching our video. We carry those ball joints shown in the video at 1aauto.com
chkwgn460: Thanks, I'm gonna replace my sisters ball joints this weekend. Wasn't sure if they were pressed in, watching your video showed that I can do it.
1aauto: If their not making any noise and check out fine, you could be just the ball joints.
jz3r9n: should the hub be replaced (like you show) when replacing ball joint(s), or did was that just some else for the video?
1aauto: Thank you for checking us out. We offer a great selection of repair parts on our website 1aauto.com
JaynJessf: I subscribed to alldata to do this project (Worthless). It was a long day I can tell you that. The second side will go smooth thanks to your video. I can not even put into words how much this video is appreciated.
modelleg: This was terrific...thanks.
und3fin: thx for a great video just installed lower ball joints on my blazer thx to you . jp
1aauto: Yep, no need to bite off more than you want to chew!
locote703: i need lower and upper for both sides ............. this video has conviced me to go to a mechanic
1aauto: You new ball joints should come with the proper bolts.
Tim James: Great video, changing my Lower ball joint this weekend (Chevy Blazer 99'), it's the original so need to break off rivets. What size bolts do you recommend to replace the rivets??
looks like you were using Allen Head Cap Screws, any advice appreciated, thanks.
hjewell2: Thank you for this vid it has helped me a great deal.
liekhus52: Do you have to remove the the wheel or axle hub to replace the lower ball joint?
1aauto: Only if the upper ball joint shows signs of looseness/wear. The lower ball joints on these vehicles are more prone to wear.
waterjunkies: Should the upper ball joint be replaced as well?
1aauto: I would only replace the hubs if they need it. They are not too difficult so replacing them separately is not a big deal.
run2010100: Great video! I got a question... When replacing the lower ball joints would you recommend replacing the axle hub as well? Thanks.
