    Is it possible to get new LCA w/ ball joint already installed from a reputable company? I know Moog seems to be a good aftermarket brand but was wondering if they even made these. It sounds like changing lower ball joints alone is a bear without the Incredible Hulk around.

    Changing lower BJ's is actually not that bad. At all. A lot easier than the uppers I'd say. Just rent a puller from your local auto parts store and change them yourself. Soak everything the night before in liquid wrench then have at er the next day. I bet you'll have it done by lunch time if you started in the morning. Both my sides took less than 2 hrs. Just my .02

    Do I need a press to put the new ones in? I used a puller for the tie rods after mangling a pickle fork. What a pain in the ass.
