FE5 05-07 or 08+ Control Arms ?
Went in for a 10$ inspection at firestone for kicks and because of a vibration and uneven tire wear.. Guys are saying that the shocks and struts are bad(no big deal, already replacing those) and that the front passenger balljoint is worn. Qouted me around 2 grand to fix all that(It was hard to not laugh..ofcourse I rejected the work)
I figured since I'm doing a suspension overhaul and the ball joint is bad...might as well replace the control arms.
So which should I get, I believe the 05-07 fit without any changes/bolt on..while the 08+ I believe I would need to change the knuckle...if so how hard is that to do?, Is it recommended.
Lastly do those control arms come with a ball joint packed? and I assume I need to get bushing.
Thanks in advance,
