as i posted several days ago, i just got my ride back from the shop after having shocks/struts replaced and 2" rough county lift installed.

after the new shocks and struts andlift were installed and the front end aligned, the mechanic tells me i need to have my upper and lower ball joints replaced soon. he advised that he didn't believe the upper ball joints could be replaced in the stock upper control arms and that i should just go ahead and replace both upper control arms.

my UCA looks liek the one pictured above.

can anyone confirm that the old UBJ cannot be pressed out of the stock OEM UCA?

was he correct that it would be easier to replace the UCA instead of trying to replace the UBJ?

thanks in advance.

I am pretty sure the UCA ball joint cannot be pressed out. Couple Moog UCA's $160ish...JBA UCA's $450.
Lowers can be pressed.
