I just replaced the upper and lower ball joints on both sides...they had been replaced before and the uppers were tack welded in place around the top. I did not think I needed to tack the new ones as I pressed the new Moogs in properly. I was wrong...the left one popped up the following day. I pressed the ball joint back in and tacked both uppers. I don't know if this is the way it is with all 99 Rams but it was necessary in this case. Who knows how this will affect the life of the ball joint. Thought you might like to know. Big Guy
