Rear Lower Control Arm Question

This type of rear lower control arm was already installed in Jeep when purchased it. Looks a little different that most that I see online. Instead of a rubber bushing. It looks like it rotates on ball. Can someone tell me exacty what type its called.

I am also looking to get some adjustable upper rear control arms so I can do the SYE/CV Drivshaft install and get rid of the vibration.

Any recommendations on what brand rear upper control arms to get

Perhaps I am getting old, but neither of those pictures give me a very intelligible look at the joints.

It's a heim joint. Not stock, not sure what brand arm, could be custom. Either way heim joints aren't great for DD, I would replace them.

I'm guessing there's a clevite/rubber/poly bushing on the other end. Swapping out the whole arm would be best but you can probably also just swap out the joint for something better like a Johnny Joint or Duroflex Joint.
