Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

Part was purchased to replace worn part on a 99 monte carlo. Easy to install
. When my son 1st bought his car we replaced the drivers side ball joint. He's been driving his car for about 2 months now. He has no complains and neither does his protective parents. Because we obviously have been happy with the 1st purchase we replaced the other sides ball joint with the same. Great value and price. Hopefully won't have to replace again but would def. buy this part again if need be.

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

      Spend the extra money and buy the Moog ball joint instead. Like others have stated the hardware strips out easily. On mine the threads on the joint itself stripped out after driving despite being torqued down to specifications properly. The cotter pin did its job and kept the castle nut on, but this is still very dangerous!

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

      Great price especially with the online discounts being offered. The ball joint itself seems to be of good quality.
      My one big caveat would be the bolts that come with the kit. I wouldn't use these on a baby carriage never mind a front end! The metal might be brass or some other soft metal. Definitely not suitable for such an important suspension part.

      Another reason to bring our manufacturing base back to the US.

        Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

        Ball Joints are great. The mounting hardware is not grade #8 when you tighten the bolts they strip. I put them on and had to change the bolts after I took thwe car for a drive. The next day they were all loose and could not be tightened. They were all stripped where I had stopped tightening them. So a trip to the hardware store and another $ 5 for new bolts & nuts and all is well.
