I bought trailing arms that already had German ball joints installed. It was cheaper than buying the joint and paying the local shop to press them in. At the time, I didn’t have access to a decent press.

Don’t use Brazilian ball joints.

The disc brake conversion doesn’t affect the width (track) enough to worry, maybe 1/4″ or less.
