    I am pretty sure that the lowers on the 2wd model are riveted in. At least they were on my 2002. you have to use a air chisel to take the top of the rivets off. Then either beat them out or drill them out. I drill them, starting with a small bit and work up to a larger bit. The new ball joint should come with new bolts and nuts
