I took the Trep to a mechanic. I need to replace the lower passenger side ball joint. I have seen numerous places that you have to replace the entire control arm. I looked up the cost of the part and found that they sell just the ball joint itself, does the entire control arm still need to be replaced?

Or you could just rent the tool at autozone or whatever?

That way you get all your money back...

ball joints are only sold as a unit with the lower control arm. To try to replace just the ball joint is very foolish butcher work and your car will become a danger to society. Just buy the ball joint/control arm unit and be done with it. The hundreds of people that drive their cars anywhere near you on the road will appreciate you fixing your car the right way. Always say no to butcher work!!!!!
