Show me a pic of what you mean - I "might" have one.
It's not what I'd call a rose joint though - more of a clevis joint.

We used to use a lot smaller ball joints like that when racing model cars, the official manufacturers parts cost a bloody fortune, one of the guys on the national race scene worked in an audi garage, they used these joints in a lot of racecar/rallycar applications, in all different sizes could be worth a punt to take it down your local VAG dealer and see what happens. They were all metric thread is your ram being yankie an AF thread
