UPDATE---- Got the control arms back from the front end shop this morning. Guy who did the job told me that you have to use an air hammer to knock back the lip on the top of the ball joint. Then he said he just used his "BFH", four pound mallet to knock it out. Then pressed in the new Moog and greased it for me. Hopefully this will help someone who plans on changing their lower ball joints, which they obviously don't last long. The truck maybe nine years old but just hit 43k this month and has sat mostly since it was bought new. I also changed out the upper control arms since the ball joints were rotted and gone also.
So change out lower control arms at @ $450 a piece?? Shiiii, forget that mess. Here's a pic of the new joint.
