New vehicle ball joint issue. Help to resolve this
I have had my 7.3 ccsb for about a month and tonight I was doing some maintenance since I didn't know what the previous owner did. I start greasing all the zerks fittings on the truck and I notice both my upper ball joints have a gap between them and the knuckle? They are not tight against it at all. I could tell the ball joints must have been recently replaced as they were in good condition and had zerk fittings.
I think this may be part of my clunking over big bumps problem but I am not sure.
How can I fix this gap without having to do a complete uninstall/reinstall or is it not possible?
I think whoever did them may have just done improper torque procedure on them
