This replacement front control arm/ball joint set is just what you need to bring back the safety and integrity of your vehicle's suspension and steering.

Specifications:

  • Control Arm & Lower Ball Joint Set:
    • (2) - FRONT UPPER Control Arms - LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side)
    • (2) - FRONT LOWER Ball Joints - LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side)
  • Control Arms include new ball joints and inner bushings
  • Parts are new, not remanufactured or refurbished
  • Fits 2WD (Two Wheel Drive) Models only

Note: This is a redesigned ball joint and may look slightly different from the original, although it will install and function correctly.

Worn ball joints or loose rear bushings can cause excessive front tire wear, popping or creaking in the front end, extra play in the steering system, and pose a serious safety concern. Replace that heavily rusted, rotted, or damaged front upper control arm with the loose bushings or worn ball joints with our high quality all in one replacement.

One way to diagnose a loose, or warn ball joint on a control arm, is to jack the car up, so the wheel is off of the ground, then have someone try to move the wheel in and out. While they are moving the wheel check the ball joint and bushings for play, if it is moving you probably need to replace it.

Our steering and suspension components come pre-greased, sealed for long life, and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greasable versions.
