AW: [DML] Super Strength Ball Joints

In about 4 years I only heared of two ball joints breaking:
mine and the one from Tom.

Mine (and aftermarket part from a VW) only broke because the
nyloc nut got loose - I didn't install the recall thing as I 
didn't want to drill in it. So it was my fault.

I don't believe that there is anything to worry about them.
If you wanna be worried look at the lower control arms that 
tend to brake with age !!!!!

If you haven't heard of ball joints breaking then you haven't read 
enough about Deloreans.  And, most importantly, considering the cars 
are NOT driven that much, the fact that it's reported as much as it 
is shows there's a problem.  Imagine that these cars were driven like 
normal cars, say 10,000 miles per year.  If there were 5,000 cars out 
there, that would be 50 MILLION MILES a year.  You'd hear about ball 
joints breaking all the time, and they'd probably ban the cars from 
the road as safety hazards.  I have mine checked each time I get my 
oil changed, and it still worries me based on everything I've read, 
given the consequences if it happens at speed.  There are lots of web 
sites available to read up on stuff like this.
