Why change the control arms are they damaged or so, or is it just cosmetic. As far is I can imagine you have to shim the control arms when putting some new ones or put back the old ones after removal so be carefull. The material is thick enough and some corrosion can do no harm. You can remove the corrosion and put some protective material on it. <> schreef in bericht news:988vk7$ebf$ > I need to replace my ball joints.
