        Comments about Driveworks Suspension Control Arm and Ball Joint Assembly:

        The part looked and fit just like oem part no adjustment required for a good fit. Was in stock so I didn't have to wait two days to fix the vehicle. This in turn made my daughter very happy so she didn't have to drive "Mr Squeaky" another day. I was busy so She'd taken it to another shop to get it's squeak remedied to no avail. The shop technician threw some parts on the car with an attempt to remove the offending noise. It was quiet possibly for two days.and then was back. I then with some time one day deduced the culprit was the lower left ball joint, the online check was made to Advance Auto and walla it was in stock and ready for pick up. Only thing better, if it would have been delivered too. Thanks for the discount and great service.

          Comments about Driveworks Suspension Control Arm and Ball Joint Assembly:

          Installed this control arm on an '03 Sebring, and I had trouble from the start. the Castellated nut included with the arm was too short to fit properly on the ball joint stud, and the OEM nut was too. After fixing this, It worked fine for about a year until the ball joint separated from the socket. Don't buy these cheaper parts; especially in a critical location like the lower control arm - you could be seriously injured.
