Both sides

New ball joint on lower control arm:



Old lower control arm ball joint with sleeve still attached



Bottom of knuckle where sleeve should still be:



Assuming I can press the sleeve back off the old ball joints, should I be able to just press these back into the knuckles? Do I now need all new knuckles?

Arrrrgh!!!!!

Go to www dot oemacuraparts dot com (this is one of the mdxers dot org sponsors). Choose parts. Enter your year, make, etc. Look in the chassis section. Find the photo of your ball joints (front or rear), to determine if it's all one single part number.

I know what you are talking about. It happened when I did mine. I cut the ball joint bolt off of the control arm and pressed it out of the sleeve. I just used a large hammer to put the sleeve back in the knuckle.
