Help!
 
Hey everyone, I am looking to replace my upper and lower control arms. I can find after market upper control arms but I have yet to find a website offering an after market lower control arm. Could anyone help me find some decent cheap ones?

Need some advise, please?
 
Ok so I have replaced the drivers side upper ball joint 3 times in the last 4 days. Then After it came back out a 4th time, I changed the upper control arm and replaced that ball joint for the 4th time.

Here is my problem, as soon as I remove the jack stands and lower the jack and back it out the garage. It pulls back out the top AGAIN.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Any help would be appreciated...

Who's the manufacturer of the replacement ball joint ? Sometimes their tolerances aren't up to manufacturer spec . If you have to , you can lay a tack weld on it to hold it in place . I've had to do that before .

Well, the upper control arm I got from the junkyard had a ball joint in it. So I put it back in and it has not came back out yet.. What I didnt understand was, the passenger side upper is the same and the drivers side upper. And the passenger side stayed in.

Then I'd say it was an issue w/ the CA itself....something is weird w/ the old one. Glad its fixed.
