Does anyone have a link to a video on how to remove the front lower ball joints on an 04. Is there a clip I'm not seeing? Can't seem to figure out the ball joint press. Any help is much appreciated. HELP!!!

I watched the video. I didn't see the guy remove the ball joint from the control arm. I will post a pic of what I have. It is the rental.

I use the same tool as Tahoefever, a Gearwrench lever press. Here's a tip: after you tighten it up and put pressure on the ball joint, then strike the casting around the ball joint taper smartly with a hammer. You can use a hammer and a steel drift to hit the casting as well. It will pop right out like a shot. Careful, it will really fly out of there!
