Yeah, the ball joints are like a cone with a threaded stud on top of them. You put the threaded stud through the kingpin, put a nut on the other side, and when you tighten down the nut, the cone gets pulled into a mating seat in the kingpin, which locates everything very accurately, and prevents any movement.
