ball joint tool with impact gun, i looked at the other side, no c clamp on the bottom of that. Its flat, no ridge coming thru long enough for a c clamp. Their is a groove in the new ball joint but its not long enough to stick thru the bottom frame part to allow me to install that. This is how the other side appears to be too. I am not really nervous. Just found it odd.

Its normal not to have a snap ring on the bottom of the upper ball joint.

Agreed. I just did all 4 of mine and the lowers were the only ones with the snap rings.
