Did this last weekend. You will need to rent a small ball joint press from autozone/checker auto. It looks like a big C clamp with different attachments - and press it right in.

first remove the snap ring with snap ring pliers. use a big hammer to pound the old ball joint out. then like rent a ball joint press from autozone press the new one in and install the snap ring. done. its very easy
