Default Lots of Front end work to be done!

okay so i bought new rotors and pads, the Econo line ones! I know i know but i figure the cheap ones are better than un safe worn out brakes.
Im doing this on Saturday my self no problem. I talked to my grandpa about the ball joint problem, it also needs LF lower ball joint, and a a RF lower ball joint , he says there relativly easy to do with a pickle fork as long as you count how many threads were there befor you started...? i have no idea about threads ive never done this befor! So is it really this simple??

And torque specs are now in Techinfo, Specifications, as of about 5 minutes ago.

And 100 ft/lbs on the lugs, in a star pattern. Tighten all to 80, then all to 90, then all t0 100. This will help prevent warping the new rotors.....especially Econo-rotors. This is CRITICAL. Also make sure the back of the wheel and face of the rotor are clean, and put a small drop of oil on the threads of the studs before putting the lugs on. This will help insure even torque.
