I knocked it out of the broken arm with a dead blow, of course you have to keep the stud completely straight in order to do it.
Came out of the old arm easier than installing it into the new arm.
C-Clip is only to lock it in once it's in place.
Not you, the OP. The upper joint is pressed out downward and can't just fall out. Arguably, if the joint popped out, the arm is probably toast. Maybe a joint with a threaded retention collar would work but a new OEM arm would be a lot cheaper than aftermarket balljoints..

The upper A balljoint is pressed "in" downward.
To pop out up, the nut would have to have come off, to pop out down would mean the the hole is wallerd out, broke clip and dropped all the way through which would mean a shot A arm.
Aftermarket arm and ball joint but you get the idea. If the BJ we're pressed in from the top the c clip would have to be on the bottom and would hold the weight of the vehicle... Like some Polaris.
