Ah yes, I remember the "Product Improvement Program " in the first Falcons as Ford called it. We had to chisel out the ball joint rivets and bolt in replacement Ball Joints and fill them with supplied Molly Bond Grease.
Australian conditions .... the streets of downtown Manhattan would have given them a run for their money.
Interesting the first Morris Minors ( 1950) had a similar Improvement Program
The screw type top ball joints wore out at an alarming rate and were replaced by tough rubber bushes where them were attached to the suspension strut. It was my first year apprentice first job. After the first dozen I got good at it !!
