I've heard that you get ball joints when you order DJM 2/4 kit with lower control arms..Should i go ahead and change the upper ball joints too? and how hard is that to do???

that is correct, you just go and buy a new control arm, the upper balljoints rarely go out though.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but aren't the balljoints in the upper control arms unservicable, meaning they cannot be changed?
Interesting, the ones on my Air Ride upper control arms are bolt in, and the lower ones were pressed in .. totally different from stock.
