I'm on the side of no, you have to buy the entire control arm from GM.

Facebook tells me otherwise. But, my LNF came with aftermarket ball joints and when I was chasing down a knock, I visibly saw the ball joint move in the knuckle when everything was torqued correctly.

Dont do it. There is a Moog ball joint that is listed to fit the FE5 suspension. It does not. There is something like a 1mm difference in diameter smaller then OEM. I did it and I replaced all kinds of things trying to isolate a front end clunk, which since I had brand new ball joints I looked at everything else. When I did figure it out finally about 3 weeks later it wrecked my spindle so I had to replace it too. Get a new control arm from Crate Engine Depot and call it a day.
