Comments: Changed the front hubs and ball joints in my 99 F250 (356k miles) last weekend using your procedure. It went off without a hitch, and I'm not a mechanic by any stretch. I really appreciate the detail you went to in your instructions. I even made the custom axle seal tool! Thanks again for your efforts in providing such a well laid out procedure.
Admin reply: Hi Randy. Thanks for posting. I am glad your ball joint job went well.

Comments: Thank you very much for taking the time to break the steps for repairs. A lot of aren't scared to dive off of the deep end and do it. We just get hung up in the process and that's where your site saved me from drowing! I replaced all four of my ball joints and seals in the front end. The parts numbers helped out a lot! Some of these items aren't stocked by the parts stores. Thanks again!
Admin reply: Josh, you're very welcome. I am glad you found my info helpful.

Comments: Just changed the ball joints in my 2001 4WD 7.3 liter diesel Ford F250 Superduty using the instructions on your site. Thank you very much,they were flawless. I appreciate your efforts and the removal and install went off without a hitch. I wish there was a more in depth guide somewhere showing how to run down vacuum leaks for the 4wd. My truck has 265,000 miles on it and doesn't use any oil but the front left wheel doesn't engage unless I do it manually. Anyway, not your problem thanks again for what your site does provide, much appreciated.
Admin reply: Thanks for posting, Mitch. I suspect your problem is not a vacuum leak. Usually a vacuum leak would affect both sides. Good luck.

Unlike youself I am a qualified Automotive Mechanic with some 30 years experience, and 14 of those with our Ambulance Service working on a fleet of Mainly F250's. An automotive friend and workshop owner asked if I had ever replaced a Frt Axle seal on a 4x4 F Series as he was having problems working out how to disassemble. Unfortunately I had not dealt with 4x4 so I was unable to help. It got the better of me so I deceided to Google it and here I am. Congrats on the comprehensive, clear and consise instructions which made this job a breeze.Double thanks for doing the hard yards and providing the detail on the tooling required to replace the seal as well. I have shown him the web site and I feel sure he will refer to this regularly in the future.
Thanks again, You should write workshop manuals.
Admin reply: Kerryn - thanks for posting your experience. The fact that you are an experienced mechanic and found my info useful means a lot. Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to post. - Jerry

Comments: All I can say is WOW! I do a lot of my own work and this site is incredible. I recently had neck surgery and so I don't dare attempt the ball joint replacement and will have to bite the bullet and pay for it to be done. This tells me so much however on what my repairman will face. It will make me knowledgeable when I talk to him. The "how to" you have is fantastic and I will put this in my memory banks for next time. Words cannot say how "class" the information was presented and the photo's so clear. What a fantastic article. Thank you for sharing your smarts and a job so well done!
Admin reply: Steve,
Thanks very much for your kind words - very encouraging! Nice of you to take the time to post. I hope your neck heals up well.
