Were they hard to remove? I was thinking about doing mine and the rest of the front end components.

Getting the spindles off was simple...but removing the ball joints was impossible...i has to take mine to the local NTB because that was the only place open on Sunday...and i still did not get them back yet

2wd ball joints are a lot less work to do than a 4wd.

It is not that bad of a job if you have the tools and are prepared.
