Have a look at this page: ht

Have a look at this page: It's about replacing a bearing, but the info you need should be there. As for the ball joint, I am asuming you mean one of the joints the hub asembly fits too on the end of the wish bones? This could couse a similare woble to a slack bearing. But would be easy to tell the diffrence from underneath.

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
