NO MORE SQUEAK!!!

Comments about Driveworks Control Arm Front Lower Left:

This part finally solved my horrible squeaking problem! The ball joints in the OEM lower control arms do not have grease fittings so they get dried out and squeak like hell. Installation is not THAT hard but it takes a lot of steps. Make sure you have several free hours and a good set of mechanics tools, plus a puller for the torsion keys. I was able to get a way with a 2 jaw puller, but it took several tries. Make sure to pull it AFTER you disconnect the front shock, sway bar links, and upper ball joint. At that point it doesn't take nearly as much force to deal with the torsion keys so the 2 jaw puller should be fine.
