|Factory upper ball joints are not meant to be serviced separately. If you still have Ford uppers, you can either get another set of complete factory style upper arms or get aftermarket arms with replaceable ball joints, often equipped with grease fittings as well.
You can either get another ball joint carrier for the 2-piece RH control arm or replace the assembly with a one piece RH arm (mirror image of the left arm). Ford switched production over to one piece arms on both sides and you can do the same.
If your truck still has the original alignment plates, you will need to substitute a set of adjustment cams.
