I just have one quick question. What would cause ball joints to wear out within a year and a half. The lower went first than the upper, all stock suspension, no offroading, sway bar links, shocks, tires, brakes.

thank you

Are the tires the stock size or are they aftermarket wheels and tires?

Yes the tires and wheels are stock sizes, the ball joints that wore out quick were only on the driver side.

Failure analysis of the issue could well require inspection of the failed item, I have no response as to why one side failed and not the other, possibly just poor quality control
