The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......
The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

if your not an eperence mechanic the best and easy way is to change the whole bottom arm this is alittle more money but alot quicker and easyer for a non mechanic. first you will need to remove the ball joint from the hub the best way to do this is with forse and a hammer . Then you will need to remove the 2 botls that holed the arm to the subframe then the arm should drop out you may need to help it with a hammer lol. And just reverse what you did to fit the new arm making sure to fit the ball joint back into the hub last .

If your replacing ball joint anyway try this -
loosen nut the the point where it is just past the end of the bolt, then hit the nut to make everything come apart. The ball joint will be damaged, but if your replacing it anyway.....

To perform the following procedure, the lower control arm must be removed from the vehicle. Refer to Removal And Installation for that procedure.
NOTE: When installing ball joint in lower control arm, position the ball joint in control arm so notch in ball joint stud is in the direction shown. This will ease assembly of the ball joint to the steering when installing pinch bolt.
CAUTION: Do not use an arbor press to install the sealing boot on the ball joint. Damage to the sealing boot will occur if excessive pressure is applied to the sealing boot when it is being installed.
CAUTION: A replacement ball joint is not pre-lubricated. Properly lubricate the replacement ball joint using Mopar Multi-Mile grease or an equivalent. Lubricate ball joint after seal boot is installed but prior to top of seal boot being pushed down below notch in ball joint stud. Air must vent out of the seal boot at notch when grease is pumped into ball joint, failure to do so will balloon and damage seal boot. Do not over grease the ball joint, this will prevent the seal boot from pushing down on the stud of the ball joint.
CAUTION: After the ball joint is properly greased, clip the end of the grease fleeing off below the hex. The ball joint seal boot is non-purgeable and further greasing is not required and can result in damage to the seal boot.
