I just replaced my upper control arms and ball joints on my SUV and now they make a very loud clunking noise when I am in reverse as well as when I turn the wheel. I tightened everything to spec and compared the old parts to the new and as far as I can tell they looked the same. I even called the place that I purchased the parts from to confirm that I got the right parts and they said that I did. I do not feel like the vehicle is safe to drive and I have no idea what the solution is and I could use some help. I matched the cam plates as well and I believe everything was installed correctly. Is there any chance that both new control arms are faulty? I could not imagine they both are but I have no clue why it is doing this. I only changed these in the first place to fix the up and down motion I had while driving I knew the ball joints were worn, they never made any kind of noise before the install. Also, I installed the grease fitting and filled with grease until the boot expanded as well.
have the same problem?
