Ball Joint Replacement 2001 F250 4 x 4

I had discovered that I need new ball joints for my 2001 F-250 SD 4x4
I was told that I cannot use a fork type seperator. Any suggestions on what type I need to finish the job.

Air hammer works to get the old one out, but you need a Ball-joint press to get the back in!

You can use a fork to remove the joints from the axle, from there you need a ball joint service tool. Harbor frieght has one. It works great! I am doing joints and bearings on my truck now. Not that bad of a job, just time consuming when stuff does not want to come apart........ that is when the Ac\Ox torch comes in

I have the $50 kit, and it works on my 4wd.... when installing the joints with that kit, do the bottom one first, then the top, that will save you a lot of cussing......

Looking for a FORD.
