Well, it should be just the ball joint damaged. A group of us, during our 
helping at Roebling Roads, SCCA driving school actually changed two on David 
Clemen's (actually Spence's car) in the paddock, pulled one from an early 
model to use and then replaced it. Primarily Spence and Smitty as I recall 
did the ball joints. Who knew?
Spence had just bought a hvy C ball joint remover and it came in handy.
