Lower control arm joints don't look quite right. What's wrong?

This is a 73 mach1 with factory disc brakes.  Years ago, I had the suspension parts replaced.  Then the car sat.

I had it up on the alignment rack today and we saw the joints at both control arms where they meet the spindles doesnt look like its supposed to be that way.  It looks like maybe the stud was too fat to fit in the hole in the spindle.  Or maybe they didnt get seated all the way?  Or maybe they are fully installed, but some mice have eaten away the rubber boots?

Hopefully somebody here has an idea from these pictures.
