front axle needs ujoint

i have a bad ujoint on the left front of my f350 super duty 02 year model. my question is do i need to knock the housing loose from the ball joints or will the axle come thru it like the f150's? never did one of these it looks like a seal in the back of the housing would keep the axle from comming thru. thanks for your help in advance.

It comes right through, you'll need to do something about driving the new (and expensive) Knuckle Seal in. Here's a tool you can make.

Ford Super Duty Knuckle Seal Tool - AKA OTC 6695 | Superdutypsd.com
Ford Super Duty Ball Joint Replacement Procedure | Superdutypsd.com

A good vid on replacing the Ball Joints, but it shows the dissassembly and axle pull clearly.


And a good resource for anytime you go into the hub

Just did ball joints and hubs. Some mechanic told me I could use a brass drift and get those axle seals put on (of course that didn't work) so I didn't have a chance to order the correct tool and I don't have a vice to use the home made tool. I took the axles to a dealer and had one of their mechanics put the seals on....He used an old hub!
