Finally going to be replacing it...

My passenger side upper ball joint that is, it's been skweeking(sp?) for a few months now and I figured now that the winch is sold and I have a bit more money, I might as well replace it instead of a bodylift. Paid 113$CAN at Caps, hopefully it fits haha

Come to think of it, I might have enough left to get a Summit BL

Those are for 98-02 trucks. Your truck should require the entire passenger side arm.

Yeah Ford discontinued the dual adjustment passenger arms in 02 or early 03 in favor of the one piece arms. Technically you could use that piece but you'd need the other half of the arm as well. Would be best to just get the one piece arm.

I've got a Mevotech arm part # 80068 right side if you want it. I reused my Moog two piece arm when I just replaced the ball joints on my wife's truck. Her old one was that MEvotech, I've even already pressed the old one out.

You can get the the replacement upper BJs for 26 bucks from Rockauto, jsut look up part number MK80012. Won't ever have to buy the whole arm again also, but you do need to press the BJs into the arm. You can beat the old ones out, but a press is better for installation.

I'd USPS flat rate box it, not sure which box or envelope I could get it in. It would be 11 or 26 shipped USPS priority (no stupid brokerage fees either), just depends on how small of a box i can get it in.

If I got 10 bucks for the arm I'd be happy, the bushings are in great shape I just had the Moogs from my wife's 01 wreck and went with those instead of reusing this one.

So it would be 21-36 bucks shipped depending on the box. Probably more like 21, pretty sure I can tape up the envelope and get it in there.

Let me know and I can can get a box today after work.
