Randy:
Just a side note. A good thing to do, when removing a ball joint, is to back off the nut a few turns, but leave it attached to the joint. That way, when the taper breaks loose, the lower control arm is still attached. Then you can use the jack to lift the arm and remove the nut completely.
Just a suggestion.

Default Randy's update

According to the System, his last post was back in July, but he was logged onto the Forum TODAY, around 9pm or so... I think Dave has his phone number and I asked him, by phone, if he could give him a call to see how he is doing.

Default Yes sometimes life gets in the way ...

Happy to see you back! Hope everyone is on the mend.
I was following your posts and videos with mucho interest because I'm facing a similar project in the spring time. Upper control arm bushing on pass side is shot, so along with those bushings I will be replacing the (original) upper ball joints and convert to front disc brakes. I'll be seeking out those MOOG K8212 ball joints based on your experience and the advice that followed.

When you replaced your upper bushings were you able to reuse the shaft? Or did you replace everything with a kit?

Default Dave Called !

.Good old Dave, he told me last night I had Square's looking hi and low for me. And if i was ok, I got to thinking and I forgot about my helpers, that is all of you Square's, lately when I do have a little time I just don't feel like going out and play alone.
Thanks Square's your the best little helpers, not that my lovely Bride hasn't helped form time to time, but she has a full plate also.
ans. Del hello thanks for the shout out.
and I did have some trouble with ball joints, stay with MOOG they fit like new. the uppers just replace bushing and ball, shaft was ok. note don't for get the shaft before tapping in the 2nd bushing.
and what I used for Whacking big sledgehammer and a 1in. 1/4 pvc adapter with threads on one side I thought it made it a little wider thats the side i did all the whacking, pick it up at hard wear store .99 it was nice fit. Dave I think has a pipe he uses,
.................................................. ..................
I rebuilt paint both used tractor john deere Black blitz paint.
