Also might want to take a look at the seals for the 4X4 vacuum hubs, they tend to go bad.
It's easier to use snap ring pliers to get the snap ring out.
After you have the new ball joints installed, and before you reinstall the axle shaft, put on the zerk fitting and grease the upper ball joint. Then remove the zerk fitting and put in the zerk plug fitting. Your gonna need to use the zerk plug on the top one because the regular zerk fitting is too long and will hit the u-joint.
