Default '03 Ball Joint

I recently noticed some collateral damage from this . . .

Apparently my Rotor got so hot it smoked my Ball Joint Boot. Since I haven't seen any posts about replacing a Ball Joint, here's my experience . . .

The OE Rivets drilled out pretty easy. Old Joint came out of the Knuckle easy. Had to drill out the Control Arm holes to 7/16". After 113k mi., the original Joint didn't seem worn at all. I purchased 2 Moog K5331 - $40 ea. - I guess I'll wait on replacing the other side. Notice the throwback Zerk Fitting. Now I need to get some grease for my Grease Gun - can't remember the last time I used it.
