    Default Ball Joints look Right.

    My Truck Came with 31.10.5 15' tires on ford 5 lug with adapters........ Now off & Those "fender Flairs"!

    Couldn't help but notice the upper ball joints ~ besides the long bolts they look right? RE: Spacing on A arm

    No they don't look right. Do factory ball joints have a zerk fitting or just aftermarket?

    Looks like a DYI replacement with aftermarket parts.
    A pro would have used all the same bolts,or cut the one down
