Icon4 ball joints

I need upper and lower ball joints. my question is will moog part number K8708T fit both sides? Its the 1-piece control arm with ball joint. I think i saw that people replaced the 2-piece set up on 1 side with this and just bought two, 1 per side but i can't remember and can't find the thread.

Also, does anyone know what moog ball joint is the appropriate one? there are different sizes listed on rock auto for rangers

On my 99 the driver side is one piece (Arm and joint) but the passenger side is a two piece configuration, don't know if that helps at all?

I saw someone go to a 1 piece arm on the passengers (04+ i believe has 1 piece on both sides) side but i can't find the damn thread lol. I just need to figure out if the same arm will work on both sides


lowers i have no clue since there are different sizes. confusing.

I really have no clue. I wish you put up this thread like two days ago cuz I could have measured them for you, I had to change all four and had everything ripped apart, but its all back together now. When I bought the lowers I just went to Autozone and had them look it up, I didn't even know there were different sizes.

The part u mentioned flr the uppers on both sides will not work for both sides. The offset or something is different on the passenger side.
