Balljoint/UCA on 09 WK?

Had my lifetime power train inspection today. Tech said driver side ball joint need to be replaced soon. Now the ball joint and UCA needs to be replaced correct? Its not making any noise. Jeep only has 30k on it. I have 5100's on the front at 3/4 setting. How can I tell if its bad? And do they make upgraded UCA for jeeps with stock suspension or should I just use stock replacement?

If you jack up the jeep put your hand on the 12 and 6 positions and see if there is a my play also see if you can wiggle the balljoint by hand by shaking the wheel with it on the ground when line went it was loose as can be but with no sound you my want to look into the rro hoer control arms off you have a lift in it not sure if they will be idle for your application though
