if you use screw in uppers then the part# is K772. The lowers are K6117, that lower ball joint is 3/8" longer than a regular impala ball joint, which will raise the roll center. I have the other part #'s in my truck I will go get them and post them later this evening.

ok the other #'s are: K6141 (71-76 Impala) K6145 (metric) K772 (screw-in) These are all LOWER ball joints. The K6141 and K772 will fit the pinto with no modifications. But I think the K6145 you have to ream the spindle. Can't remember though. I recommend the K6117 for the lower and K772 upper if you run screw in uppers. I know I said K772 was a lower above and now I'm telling you to use it as a upper, but that is true! K772 is the chrysler screw-in which is used in MOST screw-in upper a-arms.

We use the K772 for both upper and lower a-arms.
