2004 Malibu Maxx has a "clunk" at low speed, usually when making a turn. Mechanic checked steering column universal joint, no slop. Checked ball joints, 3/16" slop. Problem? No aftermarket ball joints, dealer wants $225 for ball joint/control arm, each side! Any one know if the ball joints and/or control arms are available anywhere cheaper than this? Thanks

Thats quite some slop! Damn near quarter of an inch!

225 is a pretty reasonable price.

Check with all autopart stores and online for the cheapest you can find.
