    Go with the combo pack, or do what I did, and go to your local parts store and:

    What you are looking for is Moog K9855 or its equivalent.
    TRW 104-244 is one such equivalent.
    So is the NAPA ATM 1013408.

    That looks exactly like what I installed. That auction is for two. I think I paid $25 a piece. It's good practice to replace both at once, but if you're really tight on money, it's ok to replace one and replace the other as soon as your budget allows.

    The big advantage to the more expensive 3sx BJ's is the zerk fitting. Ability to re-grease ftw!

    No parts stores are gonna show ball joints for a 3s, because its listed as a non replacable part. You are supposed to replace the whole control arm according to the dealer. These parts are direct fits though. Its just an example of dealers/manufacturers who like to try to make things more difficult/expensive, than they need to be.

    Just keep those part numbers handy for future reference.

    hmmm after looking on advance's website it says that "Moog K9855" "does not fit my 93 stealth"... just a lil confused about that is all .. i mean i ordered the right one right?
    also seen they have energy poly end links and bushings for sway bars at advance for cheap. so if i can come up with enuff money tomorrow im gonna do the front and rear sway bar links and bushings but atleast try to do the front sway bar bushings n end links cause i know the bushings are getting a lil' worn up front (and a bit in back), and not the tightest, and wait to do all the rear bushings when i have more money. less it wouldnt be a good idea to do the front and not the rear? I deffinatly know its not optimum handling but unsafe ?
    in which case if it would be unsafe if i can afford it ill do both front and rear sway bars tomorrow, or wait til i can afford it,, just not diggin how much it rolls on the turns as it is now...

    Advance says it doesn't fit because Advance, just like the dealer, will only sell the whole control arm. It fits.

    Definitely fits, the guys at the counter were so confused, I just gave up and told them it was for a Sonata.
