    It happens often with truckes being jumped, or aftermarket ball joints. Someone else had a failed balljoint when he was just going over a bump not sure on the name but he has plenty pics of the incident.


    I wanna say nelsonm?? something like that...

    i dont think his "lower ball joint" is actually broken, but the piece that connects it to the LCA, not sure if that piece comes with a new ball joint or not when you purchase at your local autoparts store

    i could be mistaken though........im sure someone will chime in

    IIRC the mounting studs sheared on Matt's truck. It was not a BJ failure.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    Yeah it's all one piece I just had mine replaced and that whole assembly is replaced. just get new ball joints if nothing got broken when this broke.

    There is a recall on lower ball joints maybe the dealer will fix it for free.

    The OP is a 5-lug. Think the recall is only for some 6-lugs.
