No. Put front end on stands, put floor jack under control arm, rememove the nut, lower the jack a small amount to allow the lower control arm to release from spindle when you whack the side to "pop" the balljoint from the spindle, slowly lower until stud portion of balljoint clears the spindle hole, remove old boot & install new one, reassemble as removed. Be careful & slow because of the coil spring....
