1998 navigator upper control arms ball joints

hi everyone,

ok so i need to upper control arms w/ball joints the job looks super easy however, finding replacement arms with air ride is proving to be a bitch.

so what have you guys done to keep the height sensors on the drivers side in place?

thanks

The original Navi driver's side upper control arm has a little 'bump' cast in it to postion the height sensor. I just measured the distance from the BJ to the height sensor bracket, put a mark on the new control arm and located the height sensor bracket accordingly.
