That is the lower ball joint in which you're missing a nut for.

I unfortunately do not know the thread size nor does the Ford ECAT list it. It's probably like the above said....7/16-20 or a M14-1.5 or something. Best bet is to hit up a hardware store in their castle nut drawer or even better yet, buy a lower balljoint for your truck (it has torison bars) at a local auto parts store, use that one to match up the correct nut and return the unused balljoint after you've found the correct size. *wink*. They usually come with a baggie containing the zirk fitting, castle nut, cotter pin, and the snap ring....but the joint itself is loose in box making this perfect executable.....just don't get all heavy hands grease monkey on the box. They gotta be able to sell it.
