    I was told that upper ball joints should be threaded and lower ball joints should be press in. Can anyone confirm or deny this? Also can a press in ball joint be replaced with a threaded and vice versa? Can anyone recommend a company that makes both?
    Thanks for your help and advice.

    Only if someone swapped out A arms. They were the same when they were new.

    The 61's had the screw in type, 62&63's should have the press in type.

    A arms are interchangeable between the years.

    No you CANNOT interchange the ball joints.

    The screw in type will have a hex top, so you can fit a socket on them.

    The press in type are round. It's pretty easy to tell the difference.

    Kanter company is probably your best source for new replacements.

    And rather than buying Chinese reproductions -- I have
    N.O.S. U.S.A. made Upper & Lower Ball Joints -- Press Fit and Threaded -- and, YES, they are different and NOT interchangeable, as indicated.... So you do need to know...

    Always best to simply call me -- Craig -- 516 - 485 - 1935....

    (kanter offers only Chineseum reproductions....)

    Hey Troy,
    Sixteen (16) days later, you have disappeared.... I Have NOT received payment, as you said you were sending for a nice beautiful set of N.O.S. U.S.A. made (perfect matched set of TRW Ball Joints )
    I left a phone message yesterday, and a follow - up
    Today / 27 hours later.....
    Is the money lost in the mail ??? More likely, has it not been sent yet ???
    Expecting a phone call --- courtesy ----
    516 - 485 - 1935........ Yours, Craig.....

    No phone message was ever returned,
    No courtesy return call was even made.

    They are now listed under "parts for sale" section ---
    U.S.A. made for far under the going rate !!!!!!

    Check it out, all others reading this.....
    Yours, Craig.....
    Oh, and Troy says he is a teacher -- I sincerely hope this lack of courtesy is not what he is teaching his students ?!?! There is too much of that in the world already.... Yikes !!!!

    For anyone who is going to read this,
    I have a block from the phone company to eliminate the telemarketing and robocalls, and dial *82 on every of my outgoings -- because I am Happy to show everyone my phone number.
    And, I gave my phone number, which little boy troy had anyway, on all 3 messages, clearly and slowly 3 times on each call.
    Since troy had NO Money, NO courtesy, NO respect, and NO sense of responsibility, I guess troy figured it was better to just hide behind the answering machine.

    WARNING:. Anyone who would ever want to have any dealings with this individual, BEWARE.... His word is worthless and his purse is worse.....

    I gave troy some advice -- such that maybe one day, he will become noble, but NOT presently....
    And due to his unscrupulous behavior, lack of manners,
    NO courtesy, NO sense of responsibility, and NO respect,
    troy has learned that my phenomenal parts, troy is NO
    Longer eligible to pursue.....

    It is truly a shame that our hobby has been infiltrated
    by something like troy.

    P.S. For all others, the only pill I have ever taken, is my MEN'S Formula One-a-Day Multi Vitamin.....But empty barrels make the most noise...
