      I did my lower ball joints today and i need to do the upper ones as well but im not sure how to get them out. Ive got a 97 so do i have to replace the whole control arm or do the ball joints come out of it.

      I had the uppers done in my 96 last week. It was the hole arm. I assume they are the same 96/97

      Yes the whole upper control arm needs to be replaced. Check www.carparts.com for MOOG brand ball joints.
