Re: 05 Taurus front wheel bearings/hubs
The hardest part is going to be swinging the lower control arm down far enough to clear the ball joint stud shaft. Where the front of the control arm is mounted through the frame hole, will hit. I was able to remove the rear control arm bolt and swing it around just enough to clear the joint.
Another thing, the ball joint is mounted in the knuckle, not the control arm. You can't use a fork to knock it out because you can damage the arm. I found a pitman arm puller works well to remove the joint.
