Thanks for the write up! We are halfway through this job and I wanted to add a few notes.
When constructing the special tool, the instructions said to ground it to 3 & 3/16" which I though was a lot to take off so I waited till I had the seal. I then ground the tool base until it fit and found it was 3 & 7/8"
Also, I have a 04 F250 and it had a metal ring behind the large dust seal that we reused. It's a little beat but should work fine.
I was unable to locate a 1 5/16 socket but found that a 33mm worked fine.
So far the hardest part has been that my buddy helping me keeps jumping ahead and messing up the steps. Thanks again.

Great write up on ball joint replacements. Shop wanted $900 for my Excursion, found your step by step write up so I am doing it myself. Also like the simple "Specialty Tools" made from common pipe and fittings. Thanks for taking the time to do a thorough job on this article!
