It's a fairly easy process. Sometimes the ball joint can be a PIA to get out of the pitman arm. Are you replacing the entire drag link or just the ball joint on the end that goes into the pitman arm? If that's all you're replacing it should be really easy. Pull the cotter pin, remove the nut and then smack the drag link up near the pitman arm downward until the ball joint seperates from the pitman arm. Or if you have room smack the ball joint on top where it goes through the pitman arm until it falls out.
If you're replacing the entire drag link, there's just a few more bolts to remove, one from the steering stabilizer, one where it connects to the R/F knuckle and one where it connects to the track bar.
