    Hi guys, I have a 1995 GT that needs the passenger side front lower balljoint replacing, does the lower wishbone need replacing too or is the balljoint easy enough to get out and replace ?

    Thanks

    +1 for the above post. If not, the BJ's are super easy to replace. Just make sure to get the right tools for the job, ie. a pickle fork from autozone. Makes life much easier.

    And a ball joint press... I just did ball joints on my 97. Air tools make the job ALOT easier too.
