I see all of these negative comments on how these are too "big" and don't fit. These ball joints are the same as the OEM ball joint, and you have to use a press to get them out and to press the new ones in.

Since the rubber boot/sleeve has to be put on after the ball joint is pressed in, don't forget to grease them after installing. This might be why some of the reviews for either this one or the lower ball joint say they failed. MAKE SURE YOU GREASE THEM WITH A GREASE GUN.

I understand that most like myself, buy these parts and do the work to save money. Although, based on most of these reviews blaming the parts for issues they're having is normally because of the "mechanic" having no clue how to do the job.

Originally purchased and installed this ball joint 2.5 years ago and after 16,000 mikes it was completely blown out and destroyed. Rubber/neoprene boot was split and deteriorated, grease everywhere and ball close to coming out of socket.
The only saving factor is this product carries a limited lifetime warranty but still needed to obsorb the time & expense to tear the front left suspension apart to have a new ball joint pressed out/in and reassemble it.
Its interesting when the product is advertised and meeting/exceeding OE specs. My OE GM ball joints lasted over 11 years and 92,000 miles.
Hopefully this replacement performs better. Time will tell.

Put then on Buick Rainer, really grateful for the larger ball joint service kit loaner. Seems to be a solid part, made a big difference in steering feel.

    Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

    Excellent, inexpensive replacement for high mileage vehicle. (Tip of the day) Put the part in the freezer prior to install, it will help the metal contract and will make installation easier. Also take advantage of the loaner Master Ball Joint Installation tool. I would say to get the larger kit of the two they have available. I did this upper ball joint in just under an hour by myself...

          I cannot believe I wasted an hour trying to line this over sized ball joint up, Only to check the reviews and find other people having the same problem, I normally shop at advance but this ball joint is way out of spec and will not fit no matter what. I suggest buying the Moog or going to a different part store , I chose different parts store this time.

              Hi Frankie, great question! I researched and found that this suspension ball joint is for front upper and is sold individually. You would need two for your vehicle which is meant as 2 required in the description.
