Go to Powerstrokeshop.com and you will find a kit for both sides with Moog ball joints and the motorcraft seals for about 250 bucks.

Yeah it is making the popping noise. That is one of the characteristics of the bad joints. The wheel camber being out is also a sign.

if you have any questions let me know, cause i replaced all the axle seals when i was doing this job. Also bought the whole kit from powerstrokeshop.com. They were on sale for 248 bucks, don't know if they still are though. Good luck!

Got it done today!!
Took myself and a friend just a little over 4 hours to do both sides.
I will say though having the right tools is important. This job can work the **** out of you without them.

The write up posted by Dieseldan is a awesome write up.

It is detailed and will help you get the tools you need to do the job quick and relatively with ease.

Thanks for help fellows!!!!!

x's 2 on the tools needed to do it.

Ball joint press, STRONG snap ring pliers and a WIDE pickle fork make for a much simpler repair!
