    Magnum AWD Lower Control Arm Replacement

    So both my lower ball joints on my 06 Magnum AWD are bad, and it looks like the entire lower control arm needs to be replaced. I've seen write ups and videos for people doing front lower ball joints on RWD cars, anyone have some good info on doing the job for a AWD?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Yes, lower control arm has to be replaced because ball joint not serviceable separately. Couple of years ago I replaced pretty much all of the front suspension and it wasn't that bad.

    I'm pretty sure they're all made in China, but I went with the Mevotech control arms because their ball joint has a grease fitting. So far they are holding up fine.
