You will end up wearing transmission fluid, soaking your hair in it. Draining the coolant is also an unexact action, coolant kinda goes everywhere, will follow the radiator hose and along other things. I have a tin fluid catcher that I keep under my

Ford would prefer you to replace the whole arm, one reason being that if the ball joint is bad, the bushings are probably bad too. I don't have any experience with 03+, but I know you can do just the ball joint, and I would presume you can do just t
