Yes.....you need to replace the entire arm. If you buy an upper, it is also non-replaceable. But.....If you go to MOOG uppers, their arms have REPLACEABLE joints....so $105 the first time, and next time will only be $40.
The lowers pop in and pop out. No no arm needed.
I suggest RockAuto.com for any aftermarket or OEM replacement parts. I bought 2 Moog uppers w/ arm, and 2 Moog lowers for under $300 shipped. Autoparts stores wanted $450 or regular old no name joints/arms. Wanted $475 for the Moog parts.
The driver side arms are all the same 98+. Passenger side is different....98-02 is two piece, 03+ are 1 piece. You can upgrade to the 1 piece...direct swap. I did it.
