There is a "wedge bolt" that holds the top of the ball joint shaft in the bottom of the shock tower. The other is the large nut on the bottom of the ball joint that holds it in the open hole of the A Arm. This larger nut is torqued at a MUCH higher spec, something like 185 foot pounds.
In the process of replacing these myself...getting them off can be a major PITA.
