Default Ball joints and suspension parts

I got my new coil overs and now as I look to replace them I知 finding I need to replace about every bushing and service part in the suspension. I知 looking to change out the ball joints but they dont look like the Jaguar XKE ball joints I知 finding online. For some reason I cant post pictures but the appear to be threaded on with a castle nut on the spindle end.

Thanks,
Pat

After doing more research it looks to be a Mustang II Suspension and Chrysler screw in ball joints. Hopefully I get the correct parts!

Not to be discouraging, but that sounds silly. Perhaps someone out there might have a better idea of what and why...

Between the Contemporary manual, the Jaguar XKE manual and numerous searches I’m slowly figuring out the pieces on this car. Front appears to be tubular Mustang II IFS with Chrysler screw in ball joints. I’m trying to order everything before I tear it down to avoid having it sitting on jack stands for who knows how long. Hopefully someone else has the same set up and can help out.

The Contemporary front coil over option was based on the Jaguar E Type (XKE) S1/S2 design using a XJ upright/stub axle carrier with a modified/repositioned steering arm and utilised Jaguar XJ 1968-1997 Upper & Lower ball joints .
Pre-assembled sealed units are the way to go
Lower bushes - E type
Upper bushes - E type or Jag Mk2
