A book like the CJ Haynes manual is a good one for these kinds of fixes. It goes over the tools and methods.
I use an old 3/4" I think it is socket to pound out the old joint and tap the new one in. There are circle clips that have to be pried out, I use a special pair of pliers for this or two mini screwdrivers.
Penetrating oil can help a Lot!
When you get the new joint, I recommend you also get new straps and bolts, they are cheap and the old straps will likely be stretched too bad to hold any more.
I also prefer the joints that can be greased, the non grease ones fail far too fast due to water contamination on the swampy trails I run on so they are basic garbage.
