ive heard 3 stories on this.
1) the ford workshop manual says you can not replace just the balljoints, must replace the control arm assemblies.
***this was what i did, i got the frpp control arms from am as i also wanted the rear bushings, but they used to be $100 less per pair too. little more involved replacing the entire control arm. the drivers side was a pita cause of the steering.
2) once you replace the control arms then you can replace just the ball joints
3) theres been at least a few guys that had just the balljoints replaced on the oem ca`s at different shops
you can buy balljoints for our cars. you would have to drop it from the spindle and press it out, then reverse. if you do try to just replace them, post back the results
