pretty easy but you need a jack and a ball joint splitter the fork type havent found an claw type as yet to fit then u need splines to get the ball joint off the hub think its 12 0r 14 mm and when you get the replacement its normally a 10mm allen key you also need a 30 0r 27mm socket for the wheel bearing nut buT remember when starting to puT the vehicle on axle stands and undo the bolt for the front suspension to let the tension off .MUST REMEMBER TO PUT ON AXLE STANDS AS IF THE TENSION BOLT COMES OUT OF THE LOCATOR THE VAN WILL COME DOWN ON TOP OF YOU
HOPE THIS HELPS CHEERS PETE
