well i have a bad lower balljoint on the right and a bad control arm polyurethane bushing. Im wondering if problems with the tie rod or steering rack or any other system can lead to the ball joints wearing faster than usual?
a bad steering rack wouldnt affect your balljoints, but a bad suspension bushing could overextend and damage them. when was the last time the balljoints were replaced? how many miles? what size tires/wheels? lots of variables will affect them.
ball joints wear out man, it just happens. same with t he arm bushings. i've hear the bushing are a pita to change out...lower bj shouldnt be too bad. if you filled out your damn location thingy i bet someone would help ya out.
