    If you go to a parts store and ask for a lower ball joint for a 3S they will tell you no. You can only replace the lower control arm assembly. Last I checked it was $435. What this howto does is show you how to not buy a lower control arm, but use a ball joint that happens to fit the hole in the lower control arm when you remove the old ball joint. I will be doing this coming up shortly. Can't wait

    correct me if im wrong here. But i believe the ball joints are the same as the Eagle Talon.

    You can get search for individual ball joints for the 3S on eBay too.

    Moog K9855 Ball Joint.
    I knocked the stock one out with a BFH (Big Freaking Hammer) And push the other in with a ball joint press tool.
    The C Clip is a big pain.
