Did my uppers and lowers today on my 01 ram 1500 and have run in to a problem passenger side upper will not press in but more a less slide in!!! Can i weld around the top of the ball joint or should I have it re sleeved and press fit in right?

Sounds like the knuckle is worn out, probably best to get a used knuckle but I have on rare occasion tack welded a BJ in. If it drops in I wouldn't, if it has some resistance when you push it in you can probably get away with tacking it.
