Having problems with your 1989 Lincoln Town Car ?
Dealer want to change my lower ball joints on my lincoln 2004 towncar for $1100
any cheaper way and is it dangares
I've done front end work. You may need a ball joint press, to remove the lower ball joint off the lower control arm and install or press the new one on. The upper ones you will have to chisel the the tops of the riviets off and drill though them unless they're on with nuts and bolts. It is easier to have the upper control arm off the car to do this also because the upper control bushings may need replacing also. You can get those off with a air chisel and on with a vise and a 5 pound sledge hammer and a sleeve on the bushing.(They make a bushing press which is better.) If you don't have air take the upper arms to a muffler shop. Before I had air, I took my arms to a local tire shop, he took the old ones off and put the new ones on for $20.
