Without seeing a picture of what you mean, I believe you need a new front lower ball joint.
The upper ball joint is bolted in with 10.9 grade bolts.
Here's a pic of the front lower ball joint install in the lower control arm.



If you mean Tie-Rod end ball joint or Sway Bar end link bolt, let us know.

What i need is the size of the nut that goes on the balljoint. It is a new fierostore balljoint. The balljoint is already press in but i lost the nut...

Ah, you did mean nut not bolt eh?
19mm metal lock nut, looks like an M10 thread but no markings on it.
My TRW ball joints look identical to the picture on the FieroStore site - not the ones with a castalated nut.
Give them a call if you don't get a better answer here.

Why not remove the nut on the other side and make sure it is the same size THEN go shopping.
