Notes about Bolt Size:
Over the years, AM General has upgraded the ball joints and the fasteners.
Latest production vehicles use 3/8" fasteners for upper ball joints, and 7/16" fasteners for lower ball joints.
It is best to replace fasteners with the same size as currently installed. For easy fastener sizing, the following list relates wrench size to bolt size.
1/2" wrench -> 5/16" bolt
9/16" wrench -> 3/8" bolt
5/8" wrench (bolt) or 11/16" wrench (nut) -> 7/16" bolt
Style & colors may vary.
