upper ball joint bold had a stripped nut my friend failed to mention. do yourself a favor and replace all bolts and nuts when lifting a vehicle. no lasting damage...just a b**** to fix on the trail

Body Damage is Cool
That sucks <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />! To replace the upper ball joint you need to get the whole A-arm. Get two so it doesn't happen to the other side on your next wheelin trip. You Kia looks good though.

luckily it was just the bolt that let the balljoint slip out..no damage..new grade 8 bolt and nut and im good to go...just about to head for some mud..i wish i had my 31's but with only three good tires im back on my 205/75/r15s ms tires. so if i read that correctly these aren't press in ball joints?
i could possibly change that.

if ur talkin bout the upper balls, go with dorman, theyre a good product and a lot more economical than spicer or moog, i looked at work today, should go for about $55 wholesale
