Track bar "ball joint" 05-07

Has anyone had to replace the track bar ball joint thats pressed into the axle housing recently? I am needing an old one for a project I am working on and dont want to buy a new one just to take some measurments. I would glady pay someone shipping plus a few bucks for the time to ship it.

I just did both of them on my 05, I'll have to dig through the scrap metal pile to see if I can find them. Stay tuned...

I thought you were referring to the big bar right down in front that connects the 2 sides. Haven't had to replace the one from the pitman arm to the one side yet. I found them, they're laying on the floor of my truck, I'll snap a picture the next time I'm out there. Sorry for the delay, I've been swamped doing storm cleanup.

Yeah the bar that centers the axle under the truck side to side. Got a ball joint on one end and just a normal bushing on the frame end. But anyhow, I just ordered a new one from rock auto for $77 but I greatly appreciate you takin the time for me!

Super easy if you have a ball joint press and the adapters. Once the bar is removed you will need to cut the tapered part off with a die grinder or similar the press it right out, and press the new one right in.

Here is a pic of it flipped opposite from its original position

No sorry, the replacement part I got from rockauto was a ford, but it had a grease fitting on it, the original did not. I was unable to find anyone taht offers this other then ford. IIRC it was about $60ish

Silvercrew, I know this is an old thred, if your still around, could you please tell me about the tracbar in your picture with the balljoint flipped.
Also, does the stock ball joint press out up? (I assume) The reason you cut the taper was to fit in the balljoint press?

I got the ball joint pressed out. (without damageing it) I'm making an adjustable trac bar. I'm still hoping Silvercrew will see this and give the low down on the flipped trac bar. I'm going to have to get a tapperd reamer and ream the other side of the trac bar. I dont like that because of the hourglass taper it will create.

I know this is an old thread I'm resurrecting, but I may be able to help. It irks me when people never post conclusions to these things. Here is my thread on the subject, I hope it helps Helirich.
