    When I had my lower ball joints replaced last year it was a dealer item only, and you had to buy the whole complete control arm as the BJ wasn't available separate. Then you had to buy new control arm bushings, alignment cams and bolts, etc. It is a very expensive procedure.

    I don't know if the aftermarket supports our trucks yet.Best to take the truck and your new BJ to your mechanic for further information.
