'99 ford van ball joint replacement

How difficult is it to replace upper and lower ball joints on a '99 E250 van?
Looks like I need a press, or a really BIG hammer.

You're going to need a ball joint press and there is also a special attachment to the tool for the van.

You need to source a shop manual for the van before starting.

I ordinarily like doing my own work but this is one I'd take to somebody and pay them. It's a pain on this vehicle.
