Got the UCA's, now need the moog joint (yes I searched)

Like the title says, I got my PS UCA but I need a balljoint, preferably Moog. Thing is I can't find a part number for JUST the balljoint, I always end up getting a link to the whole set (UCA + BJ).

Any help would be appreciated as I have been looking for over an hour all over the web.

The UCA's you bought didn't come with a ball joint?

Bought them used from Carl (buckgnarly).

I got them ordered, thank you close exchange rate! lol

And thank you to you both for the numbers, especially Carl, thank you for the quick shipping on the UCA!

Argh, wish I seen this sooner.

I have a brand new MOOG UCA w/ BJ that fits your application. The boot on it was chewed up from UPS, but really there's nothing wrong with it. There isn't a hole into the interior, but I didn't want a chewed boot especially after paying for new UCA's and upper and lower ball joints from Rock Auto. They sent me a new UCA w/ BJ, so what I have, I got for free.

It's in my garage collection dust, also comes with the grease nipple, C clip, and spindle bolt.

Damn, I would have given it to you, a savings of $150

You edge/4x4 people with MOOG replacable upper BJ's.

I bought MOOG upper arms for my truck, but the BJ's are built into the arm, no way to change them, and no grease nipple! WTF!

I was under the assumption that all MOOG UCA's had replaceable BJ's. My UCA's came with the BJ's in them as well, but by removing the C-clip and popping them out, well they come out. Also, the BJ's don't come with the grease nipples on them, they are in a separate baggy. Seeing as they need to be pressed in, the nipple would get in the way, so it's put on after the install. Where did you get your UCA's from, and were they installed at a local shop?

I installed them, I got them from rockauto as well. And no grease nipples, and no hole to screw one into, the arm looks almost exactly like my stock arms, just a little different. And from rockauto's site, the image shows the exact arm I got...no grease nip. Also, there is no snap ring to take off to press the joint out....its all built together. If you get this.....the joint doesn't seem to be pressed in...it seems to be "compressed" in, if you get my point.
