Can't tell if joking or asking.

I see a ball joint popping out or a bent outer C...not sure.

i think the hole in the C is a bit worn out and the ball joint "popped" out...

i knocked it back into place, failry easily.

Sounds like time for a new axle if the hole in the inner C is to big

yep, inner C was a wee bit too large...

i couldnt find an oversized ball joint for an XJ anywhere!!

i took it to a mechanic and he pressed it back in and used this.
