Unfortunetly I couldn't get the link to work so I followed my instinct and replaced them with no problems. Putting the entire care up on jack stands and using an air ratchet with an extension deep well socket was very handy. I also used a heavy duty vise with 2 sockets to press the old joints out and new ones in. Thanks for the response to bad the link didn't work.
