Front lower ball joint info?

Does anyone have any info on the front lower ball joints?

I have one that seams a little loose.....I havent taken it apart yet to see whats going on but are there any replaceable parts in there? I would imagine going to a sealed ball joint would help with wear and free up the steering some as well.

Just a thought.

If I remember right it is pressed into the swingarm and held in with a snap ring. It's possible the snap ring popped out of the groove or else the joint needs replacing.

The lower ball joint is a spherical bearing.
Chances are that it is indeed loose.
Mike at red rock can get you the FK Teflon lined replacement. As well as all the other Rod Ends on the car.
