Re: Upper Ball joints...?
I used Moog ball joints on my 71. I don't know if yours are made the same way but the boot should have a lip on the big end. The metal cup they go into has a rolled lip at the end of it that the lip on the boot should go up against. The boot should also have a bump with a slit in the side that should face inward. Also don't fill up the boot with grease to the point the boot looks like it's going to explode. If you can include a picture of the boot and metal cup with the boot installed in it.
