I replaced the upper and lower ball joints (along with new shocks all the way around) on my 1998 Bravada approximately four years ago. Last year, I had to replace the lower ball joints again, along with an idler and pitman arm. Now, I'm told that both lower joints and one of the upper joints are bad again. I have always used/specified MOOG replacement parts in my suspension repairs. Is there something else causing these ball joints to wear out so quickly? The original factory set lasted almost nine years and over 100K miles. Now, it looks as though I'm going to be on my third set in the last four years and roughly 40K miles.
