Use the search button and enter 2 piece uca.
There's a couple pages of threads .
IIRC the replacement is one-piece.

FORD had a better idea ! Spend the customers money.

When you buy replacements get Moog Units, Lifetime guarantee on parts.

Check out Rock Auto, appeared to have the best prices when I did mine (last year).

The two piece arm has additional adjustment on it for caster I believe. Y they did it to one side Idk. Last time I looked rock auto still had the two piece arm but I opted to get the one piece
