ball joints and ucas

does anyone know if the upper ball joint can be replaced or does it have to be the whole upper control arm? i got the moog part number from rock auto but no picture, dunno if the control arm is with it or not. dealership wont warrenty it because of the lift ( knew that anyway) so im just gonna go ahead and do both sides before i get my wheel alignment.any help or part numbers appreciated. im not getting the rough country or fabtech ones, way to much money and my truck sees little abuse, i only avg 11000kms a year and 98% pavement...think i ruined the ball joint when i had the bills maxed stacked on the 6"rcx. when i put these in im also dropping down to .7 from 1.4. the drivers side is almost gone so id rather do both and get it over with..thanks in advance ..my lowers seem fine btw.

so i didnt get moog...wasnt sure on them being all in one and couldnt get a clear answer...not sure what these are got em from rock auto, guy said they would be fine, called them a "forged" uca with greaseable ball joint and made in canada . good enough for me. also got powerstop ceramic pads front and rear, and a set of drilled and slotted powerstop rotors for the front. back rotors are still smooth as butter so i didnt bother.worse case i ruin a set of pads. but i figure the upgrade up front was long overdue with the lift and bigger tires.

Your only possible upgrades from Moog are UCAs from CST, KORE, or Pure Performance.
