How do I replace the boot on my upper control arm ball joints?

Replace your ball joint boots in less than 15 minutes.

If you put a jack under the lower control arm, lift up 1/2", take the weight off the tire, set up jack stands for safety, loosen the ball stud nut, separate the ball stud from the steering knuckle, lift the arm out of the way of the steering knuckle, remove the old boot, install new boot on ball joint housing, install zip tie, clip off excess zip tie strap, reinstall ball stud in steering knuckle, install nut on stud with blue lock tight, torque to 60 ft-lbs., remove jack stand and jack. (15 mins or less)
