Trying to do the ball joints on my 95...

...but all the tutorials i have found are for the 98 and newer trucks. I did the ball joints on my friends 2000 f350 4x4, and the tutorial was great, but my 95 f250 4x4 has a different axle. It seems mostly the same, is there anything i should know that will be different about the job before i start?

Also, none of the dealerships stock any hub o-rings or seals. How necessary is it that I replace them with new ones? I have time off work this Saturday, and i need the truck for construction next week, so I am pressed for time.

Thanks for your help!

It all comes apart the same, the only difference is the wheel bearings. The greese seals should be avalible at your local auto parts store.If youve done a newer one you can do this one.

Great, thanks for the words of encouragement. I will pick up the hub grease seals and carry on.
