Tomorrow I will be changing my ball joints (upper and lower) for the first time on my truck. Any suggestions on getting the factory rivets out would be most extremely appreciated.

Grind the heads flush with the plate and then drill them out.

Once you grind the heads off you can use a punch and hammer to pot the studs out. Drilling can cause a problem if you drill out more than the stud which is very easy to do.
