I far as I can find, Moog doesn't sell just the upper ball joints for our car. I believe if get in the Zone, AutoZone (or similar store. I was just being sarcastic about AZ)... you can buy upper ball joints separately. But by the time you waste time and money buying them, then pressing the old ones out, pressing the new ones in, you'll have bent the arm. It's just easier and not that expensive to buy the whole arm w/ ball joint.

Front Upper Left Control Arm w/ Ball Joint: K8596
Front Upper Right Control Arm w/ Ball Joint: K8598

And if they don't come with the grease fitting, usually you can take the cap off and put a fitting in. I haven't gotten to replacing my own upper arms yet, so I can't remember off the top of my head if they come with fitting. But they probably do. :zdunno:

yes....I had the same ones. Remember, its the entire arm, not just the ball joint, the upper balljoint in not seperately serviceable.

Moog and TRW are the same for these parts, one make them for the other. As for the part# for the greaseable type, its a hit/miss game. Same part # for either kind, so open the box and see if you have the greaseable one or sealed type.

Well,

I get almost all of my parts from locally based parts stores. I usually just call around to find the best price and try to play one store against the other. I usually get a few dollars knocked off the price. RockAuto is all fine and dandy but I can get a part like control arms in a day from one of the local chains here in Florida. I think I paid 55$ or so for my upper arms. They were Moogs....

I get almost all of my parts from either Congress Auto or Bennett Auto Supply. Problem is, they are only found in Florida.
