You're really lucky that it happened in the driveway!

You have to use a Ford pinch bolt, the gray one is OEM and the black is what's usually found in some aftermarket ball joint kits. See how the OEM is fatter on the non threaded part, it's critical for keeping things together.

I had the part number for the bolt, but I can't find it right now.
