Welcome, nice 67 you have there. Give these guys a try, I know they often have the lower ball joints available. If you don’t see it on the site, give them a call.

Welcome! That is a beautiful wagon you have there. Do your lower ball joints need replaced? The reason I'm asking is that any new replacement you might find is going to be foreign made, and of inferior quality. If you put some fresh grease in the ball joints and then check for free play, you might be surprised. Chrysler had the most stout front end parts of all the car manufacturers back in the day. When I did PA safety inspections the allowable free play was always a few thousandths more than GM or Ford. You would use a dial indicator to measure and compare your reading with the spec chart. Hope this info helps and keep us posted on your progress.

WOW - what a fantastic wagon. The Budd brakes have their issues, but are worth it in stopping ability........ There's a lot of good information on the Imperial Club page, too: www.imperialclub.com, BUT remember that only a few of the parts are common between the T&C wagon and Imperial. I'm inclined to agree with mrfury68 above on checking what you have before just replacing....... Good luck.
