How to Replace Ball Joints on a ’03 Dodge Ram 4X4

71

A worn-out ball joint affects your truck’s suspension and needs to be replaced to maintain a steady ride. A Dodge Ram 4X4 generally has a solid axle where you can’t remove the control arms. You will need to “press” the joint out, which will require special tools available at some auto parts stores and equipment rental yards. This process can vary depending on the exact type of suspension and your exact tool. Talk with your mechanic beforehand.
