Quick ? On balljoint number

I just bought an upper control arm for my ranger, moog number k80068 as it says on the box. However, stamped on the arm itself is 8016f, did I get the wrong parts in the right box? Or is this just a manufacturers part number? Could someone check this for me please....tia

Is that the passenger side? Did you order the one piece or two?

FWIW, the characters on mine are 80167F-RIGHT. It's definitely a K80068 and I bought it about 6 years ago.

It's hard to guess what the difference in characters might mean. Maybe you could call up a tech guy at Moog / Federal Mogul tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a picture for comparison to yours.

I ordered the passenger side one piece. Thanks for taking the time to take that pic for me, I appreciate it. Mine says 80167-right as well, so I guess it's the right part. I just found a post on the explorer forum where a guy had the same exact question. I didn't wanna get my truck all torn apart to find out i had the wrong part, wouldnt be the first time that happened. I wonder why moog doesn't just put the right part number on it. O well, nice shocks btw...
