Re: [DML] Super Strength Ball Joints

10,000 a year??  That'd be a light year for me.  There are several of us out 
here who do drive our cars every day.  Unless you are neglecting the recall, 
installing inferior parts, or otherwise ignoring damage the ball joint, it 
should be the least of your worries.

I'd be willing to bet that the failures you're hearing about come from 
uninformed owners driving on  un-recalled cars, or those who use a joint 
from a cross-over that is incorrect.  As long as you are using the right 
part, there is nothing that needs improvement on the DMC ball joint.
