I haven't changed the ball joints on a Toronado yet, but wondered why you needed numbers off the steering knuckle. When I logged onto RockAuto they have three brands of ball joints. They don't specify any difference related to the steering knuckle. Did a parts store tell you there's different ones used in 1970?

From what I understand the lower ball joint is the same but the upper it makes a difference, Rock Auto only shows lower ball joint. I use Napa because I work there.

OK, so the steering knuckle you need the number off of is the u-joint in the steering column? Or if I'm thinking wrong please describe for me the part you need the number off of.

I'm thinking about this some more. Is this the piece that the axle goes through? If your car is disc or drum maybe that's a difference that uses different part numbers.
