Ball joints...first time...ideas?

I am getting ready to do ball joints on my truck. I have never done them before, and I have read the articles that I can.

How much different will it be for me because I have a RWD truck (and not Fx4 that is in the writeups). Is it the same basic principle?

I am going with Moog joints.

Any suggestions?

I am going to do a brake job at the same time.

Thanks,

John

I believe since you are 2wd you have twin I beam correct?

Its not that bad, just get a big hammer, or better yet the ford tool, makes life ALOT easier for 60 bucks. Its really straight forward. Its the tools that get ya.
