yeah whole upper, greasable, you cant press them out unless you grind the weld and reweld or something like that. Still tho they are 50-70 if you get em from the states.

No they are brazed in, you would have to grind, press, reweld. Well just got done, 4 ball joints and 2 tie rod ends. Everything was sloppy you could shake it and it moved like jello. Gotta book an alignment and im sure it will feel tight as hell.


Also I did it a bit different, Instead of pulling the cv axels, i just took out the lower a-arm bolts, and pivoted it up and the balljoint came out.
