Q:Besides the mounting to the controle arm how is this part different from the lower Ball as far as strength or tappe?
A:The only difference between the Upper (Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint - Part No. DW-K8212) and Lower ball joint is that the lower joint is mounted on the lower control arm. It gets exposed to more road dirt and salt and usually wears out faster. Whereas the upper ball joint has less exposure to road dirt and usually wears out slower. When a ball joint starts to wear out, you may notice unusual wear on your front tires, or clicking/squeaking noises when you turn or when you brake or accelerate.
