dissapointing to say the least

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

500 miles and the boots are gooey. There is already movement and a grinding feel when moving ball joint in its normal Tavel path. I've not been happy with moog suspension parts lately so I opted for drive works. Guess I'll pay the extra and get delco next time.

    Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

    The nuts and bolts are low grade and the threads ripped off when installing. Ball joints only lasted 1 year and the grease boots leaked everywhere from install date. Don't waste your money, buy Moog!

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

      I installed this driveworks ball joint on my 1997 Chevy Blazer. It lined up properly and got the job done but, the grease boots where not constructed well and did not make a good seal to the ball joint. This caused all the grease to come out of the top sides of the boot when filling them with a grease gun. I was going to return them and get the Moog brand but, didn't feel like taking it all back apart again. You get what you pay for I guess. Also the screws and nuts they supply are made from cheap materials and the threads round off if you're not careful when tighten them up. I had to use some of the screws from the old ball joints because a few stripped before I even could torque them to specification. I will never buy this product again.

      • Q:

        This is for a 2003 s10 4wd. No information provided with lower ball joint. Should the nuts be on the top or bottom? The bolts are rather long. What should the torque be on these bolts?
