Trunion type front suspensions were used on 1960s Rambler cars. They were known for popping apart. I believe they were called `ring and trunion'. They used threads instead of a ball joint.

My Father-in-Law and I came down a steep hill near Blackfork,OH and the trunion popped out, the tire leaned out almost horizontally and he got it stopped before the stretched brake line broke. Whew! No dual master cyls. back then. You lose a brake line,all brakes are gone except emergency brake.
