anyone know what kind of antenna ball this is? I would like to add a rubber antenna so I would still get some reception, this is somehow working a little, but I need to get this antenna fixed, I don't know anything about it, the PO must have broken it off somehow this is the antenna for my am/fm and sorry took this pic at night

I had one very similar to that on a truck of mine. was from the local autoparts store I believe made by spectre - mine was rubber, had the ball just like that and the 90 degree bend.

Very similar to this:

★new Universal Car Stereo Am FM Rubber Antenna Roof Fender Trucks Audio Booster★ | eBay

Or This:

Metra Electronics Rubber Antenna 44-US07R: Advance Auto Parts

The ball is adjustable and can move 180 degrees

All over amazon too - but can't find reviews:

That second one you posted sure looks close, I think I may give that one a shot do you know if I can remove the antenna cable and use the one that's already routed or will I just need to re route the new cable

I'm fairly certain you will have to re-route a new cable. I don't think the cable is removable from the antenna mast.

x2 - just a cheap universal antenna kit. Get a whole new antenna - what you show in the pic does not look salvageable.
