If you're just changing the upper ball joints, you don't really need any special equipment. If the upper ball joints are riveted on, you just need a hammer and a chisel to cut the heads of the rivets off. The new upper ball joint bolts in place. The lower control arms are a bolt in item. Not too hard to do. You'll need to keep the coil spring compressed for both operations.

Now if you're changing springs, spring seat bushings or spring insulators, you'll need a spring compressor.

Otherwise, you can do it with hand tools. I'd defintiely let someone do the alignment, though.

Good luck.
