RE: [DML] Lower ball joints

Thanks for the advise Tom.  Don't worry though, I realise the importance of
that part and will not be trying to match something up on the look of it.  I
have had a ball joint nut sheer of and luckily minimal damage caused.  Im
specifically looking for either the exact part used or if anyone has stock
of the original Ball joints.

Let me suggest that you do not mess with the lower ball joint! I had some 
cross-over joints on my car that looked exactly the same from the outside, 
but were not meant for the forces of this setup. The passenger side ball 
joint came apart while driving. The good thing is that I was going slow, 
just shifting from 1st to 2nd when the suspension collapsed. The result - 
damage to the wheel, lower control arm (beyond repair), bent frame.
It's not worth it! Call one of the vendors and get the correct part.
