I bought new ones but didnt replace them. I ended up taking them back because the actual ball joint wasnt bad and didnt have any play. If you get new ones, get moog ball joints, theyre really beefy. Also your gonna have to take the whole spindle off and everything to take it to a machine shop to have them pressed out and pressed in. Good luck!

Yeah your gonna have to take the whole assembly out and take it somewhere like napa to have them use a hydraulic press to pop them out. kinda sucks but give em a call and ask how much it will be
