Also, be sure to align the notch on the new ball joint to the notch on the A-Arm

The big ball joint socket tool works well, but sometimes one needs a 3/4" impact with a snap-on, mac, or Matco 3/4" to 1/2" adapter

Also a good time to inspect the A-Arm bushings. They can be replaced with a good poly type bushing or the bearing type bushings. Of course then it is time for the old T-Bar upgrade and turbo tie rods.
