I've looked through a lot of stuff online and it appears that these all go in different ways depending on the model and year. I'm wondering if anyone has an answer specific to my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500.
The upper ball joint and arm are one part. you can not get them seperate.
If you need new bushings and are thinking of or need ball joints you just buy a new upper arm.
