I think I found some on Autozone'* website (Zip 56001) Duralast for $23 each. + $28 core.

Otherwise.. P/N 88911630 on GMPD for AC Delco. $54

or MOOG for $58 each @ www.rockauto.com, no core however.

They have MOOG control arm bushings for $14 each as well.

after seeing the blowup of the new parts, i assume they aren't riveted on?

The old ones are riveted on and must be torched/drilled off.

The new ones bolt on with 3/4" bolts.

Do not use cheap ball joints. They are cheap for a reason. Use NAPA or MOOG. For all that pain and busted knuckles, use good parts.

I think i'll get those MOOG ball joints online (if shipping ain't bad), and the MOOG control arm bushings in store ($8 @ champion) .

Otherwise Champion wants $80 for MOOG ball joints, and Napa wants the same for their lifetimers.
