Hello you need a balljoint 'splitter' or removal tool as a special tool to remove the outer balljoint from the wheel uprightother than that you'll need the requisite sockets and spanners to undo the pivot / bush bolts typically a 19mm across flats bolt then its a case of removing the bolts and releasing the balljoint then a large pry bar is used to lever the lower arm out from between its mounting points refitting the bolts for the suspension should all be with locking nuts and the two inner bolts need to be tightened up with the vehicle road wheels on the ground or with a jackthis puts the bushes in the correct positiontorque for the large bolts is 70Nm and 40 for the balljoint retaining bolt
