Johnny joint identification

I noticed that the c-clip was broken on one of my control arms.

The prior owner installed a Rough Country Long Arm kit, so I picked up a RC rebuild kit.

Once I got the joint disassembled, it is clear that it is not a RC joint, at least not a recent one. There is no set screw or screw in spacer like the current ones have.

So now I am trying to identify what type/brand of joint it is, so I can order the correct kit to rebuild it.

Does anyone know what type of joint this is and what rebuild kit I need? I did some searching, but didn't see this specific one.



It also looks like the metal ball insert is chewed up a bit as well.

No sorry but I would go to ace hardware or lowes and buy a c clip. They have drawers with tons of sizes I'm sure you could find one.

Well, it's not a Currie Johnny Joint (that title belongs to Currie and is not a generic term for all spherical joints). Looks like it could be the most recent version of the RC joint.

Yep not Currie, and it doesn't look like it was made by Rubicon Express either which I used to run.
