My son bottomed the truck out on a culverted drive bending the stem of the ball joint. The joint is riveted to the rocker arm. Can the ball joint be replaced or do I have to replace the entire rocker arm?

Do you
have the same problem?

As long as control arm is not bent then you cut rivets and replace ball joint. New one will bolt on.
