    Its been a while but I think the uppers were rivited in. Usually either grind or drill the tops off the rivits to get them out.. Lowers were always a press fit, a ball joint press is the best way. You might be able to rent one from Autozone or equivalent. Harbor freight also has them for a reasonable price.
