Hello all,

My 2002 NB had its annual safety inspection today, and was told both front lower ball joints will need to be replaced soon. Is there any brand or type that would be better for me to get? Any to avoid?

Thanks!

Patrick

I would probably get OEM units if you are going to be keeping the car awhile. If you only plan on keeping it a couple more years and dont put on many miles, go for the aftermarket Meyle ones as they will save you a few bucks.

And just FYI, there are no "lower" or "upper" ball joints. There is just one ball joint on each side.
