Just did this two days ago. Same as the fella above, removed knuckle, tore the retainer ring out with some pliers, then pounded the old ball joint out with a Ford Wrench. Pounded the new one in with the Ford Wrench, but rather lightly. Getting the new retainer ring in was a beeyotch. I'd recommend snap-ring pliers for that.

Also, make sure you have a pickle-fork to seperate the upper ball joint from the knuckle...so as not to damage it.

That was a joke, right?
To clarify...

...a greased pickle-fork to seperate the upper ball joint from the knuckle...so as not to damage it as much as whacking it out with a mini-sledge. :D
