Ball joints are a press fit, I'd do all 4 b/c if one is gone, the rest are going..

Ops

The '99 ball joints are different from the later years and a little easier to install.

Aside from the rotors, check the brake lines, sometimes they get gunked up and clogged. Usually the rear. If it happens to one side it, the opposite will grab more.

But remember he's working on a 2wd. Not a 4wd. So the ball joints are alot easier to get to and get apart than a 4wd.
