You can purchase retro-fittable ball joints from the likes of Moog, where you drill out the OE rivets and put in the new ball joint with bolts/nuts. Alternatively, you can purchase an entire control arm with ball joint from Dorman for like $65.

Both would be best sourced from your local Advance/O'reillys.

The other option would be the Focus Central arms, they run $395.
