Just looked at some pics of replacement upper and lower ball joints for a
2000 Ram 1500 2WD... both are bolt-in. The lower is four bolts, and the
upper is three. Of course the factory ones are riveted, so once they're
drilled out, the replacement will bolt in place.
For some reason, vans were different, and did indeed have threaded-in ball
joints. So, that makes vans threaded ball joints, 2WD pickups riveted ball
joints, and 4WD pickup trucks pressed-in ball joints.
They must like to keep us all guessing... :)
