FORD EXPLORER UPPER CONTROL ARM PROBLEM

1998 Ford Explorer • 180,000 miles

We had the passenger side upper control arm replaced in sept 2012 and am now being told it needs replaced again. The people who replaced it in the first place also replaced the drivers side lower tie rod and put the wrong part on which we caught and made them fix. Is it possible for the control arm to go bad in 5 months or do you believe they probably put the wrong part on that also?

It is odd that it would go bad that fast. As far as it being the wrong part, I doubt it would fit if it was. I would go back to them and have them check it out again. Maybe they just got a bad part.
