99 F250 SD steering knuckles

Got to do the ball joints on my 250 SD (99) and Exc (00), want to set up the knuckles before I do the tear down since I do not have a press, and I want to do as much as I can to make sure that once I start on one I can start and finish in a single day.

Looking for the front steering knuckles (both sides), the piece(s) that have the ball joints, both are 4X4 - how much shipped to 21755?

I would suggest going to the auto parts store and renting the ball joint press tool My local stores will rent for free. Do one side one day and the other the next.

Also be sure to get all the seals and o-rings needed for the job.

2 5C3Z3050E Grease-able lower ball joints

2 F81Z3254CB Seal
2 F81Z1S175HCA Wheel seal
2 EOTZ3K050B lower ball joint snap ring
2 F2TZ3A049A Upper ball-joint nut

Thanks for the parts list! That is great, I was putting that together with plans to gather all the parts I could possibly need and have therm here before I started - this is great! The one thing that was on my list and not yours were the wheel berrings - the one truck has almost 100k on it and the 2nd has 150k on it, should I be looking at replacing the wheel berrings while i have the front end torn down?

The thing is - I typically will get one day on the weekend for this kind of thing - if I cannot get it done in a single day it will most likley span multiple weekends do not want to do that. I will check the local auto parts store to see if they have the ball joint press and what they want to rent one - I know the Advance Auto stores around here will lend tools and the last time I used them it took me t trips to the store since the first tool ended up missing some parts, but I did eventually get one that I was able to get the job done with.

I think that you will find the wheel bearing unit very expensive. Probably want to check it out and replace when needed rather than preventive maintenance. I was able to do both in a single day. If you can't find a rental place check out harbor freight. If your not familiar they sell crappy version of tools. Many are not worth their weight but something that your going to use once or twice and then store they work fine. That is where mine came from and I have used it several times.

If you have a spare set of knuckles I don't think you will gain more then maybe 15 - 30 minutes on the project. Most of the time is going to be in the removal of the knuckle and reinstall of it. Pressing in the ball joints is pretty quick with the tool.
