    I am going to replace my OEM UCAs for a newer set of OEM UCAs with lower miles.
    the boots on my UCA are torn and i fear that the balljoints have been damaged by a previous spacer lift. I already have the replacement UCA.

    I am debating if it will be easier if i just replace the balljoint, instead of replacing the entire UCA's?

    Easier to replace the whole UCA.
