Upper Balljoint Problems

So i tried to do some searching on here and RPS but i couldn't really find to much info.

My upper ball joints are bad, for sure. I did my lowers not to long ago.

Do i have to get a whole new upper control arm, or can i just get a new ball joint?

FYI my truck is a 1999 XLT 4.0 2WD. Coil Sprung.

Thanks guys!

From what I understand, the factory balljoints are not removeable and you must replace the UCA. Moog is the recommended brand

yeah, if you get the MOOG uppers then you can replace just the joints in the future.
