new for sure. i know auto zone, napa and other part stores but for my bronco i have used jeffs bronco graveyard and they sell kits and and all parts are good quality and at a good price, they care about bronco owners do ranger owners have part stores like that. just asking? how to would be nice, checking old posts some say upper can't be replaced you need to replace control arm?

Hey I just did that!!!
The hardest part for me was seperating the lower ball joint from the spindle....
The worst part was paying 100 bucks for an alignment.

not sure if this helps with a 99 but here is the guide I used for my 2004.
