Upper ball joints seem to be short-lived with the Truxxx lift. I buggered the passenger side trying to check it with a pry bar like my mechanic showed me and tore the boot. Just had new Moog Problem Solver UCA's put on for state inspection 6 months ago. Ordered one Moog Problem Solver ball joint from Rock Auto and will get a ball joint tool kit from Harbor Freight. The ball joint says it comes with a snap ring but I don't know where the snap ring goes. I have never changed a ball joint before. I found this video on YouTube and it looks like something I can do. Please advise. TIA.
