1970 Mustang ball joint testing

I think my upper ball joint on the right side may be worn out, what's the easiest way to test it?

Put a jack under the lower control arm as close to the lower ball joint without pressing on the tire or wheel. Then rock the wheel in and out at the top to check for play. Here's a little info too. Ball joints
