    If I dont want to go OEM with upper arms or spend a ton on aftermarket ones what should I do? Am I screwed? My upper ball joints are thrashed at this point.

    You replacing the whole UCA or just the ball joint?

    Cause OEM upper ball joints arent that expensive iirc.

    Just the ball joint. But I heard its easier just to replace the whole upper as its a PITA to press in and out just the joint.

    OEM upper to press out is minor.

    You'll need to do that regardless, it's not that bad my first time was had but by my 3rd it was just another thing

    My 3rd time I just used a hammer because they were rust free and came right out than went right in with the right socket on the bj, and splindle supported on my cars wheels hub

    I found that easier than using a press tbh

    So had my tech friend come look at my truck and confirmed the cat is fucked. Going to go full test pipe and delete the cats. gonna call some exhaust shops to see how much this is going to cost me.
