Default Sorry.

Sorry everyone, I dont see an area I can go to and vent.

I have replaced inner and outer front wheel bearings on both sides, I have changed the outer tie rod end on both sides, upper and lower ball joints on both sides, and now it seems that I have to replace the upper and lower control arms on both sides.

I am so about to give up and just sell it. I am so frustrated!

yes I have done all of what I said and now the ball joints will not stay in the hole. I need upper and lower control arms now, the holes are now too big for the ball joints. And I cant afford the control arms.

Man, that really sucks, and while I know it's not much, I sympathize with your frustration!!! Been there enough times myself, just with different problems, mainly on my Jeep!

They were pressed in, because I went and bought the press kit. And I had to go get a second ball joint after the first one came out right after I pulled it out of the garage. And was told that my next step would be to replace the "upper control rm" or "upper A arm".
