If you have been buying the driveworks brand, I am not surprised. They're crap. There is a reason that they're like $15

Dont buy the cheap balljoints. Ive purchaced the affordable kind from advanced and autozone before when my ball joints gave out. After replacing with cheap kind, a day later they would creek and squeel just like the older balljoints were about to give out. It wasnt until I replaced then with the expensive kind (some NASCAR promoted kind, dont remember brand, long time ago) Ive had no balljoint noise or trouble since.

@ Slowsix, yeah I agree. At that time it seemed like a great buy. So it goes..you get what you pay for. Yup, was the driveworks brand. Thanks.

@ izzy1111, yeah that is how I knew they went bad that nasty squeak/creaking sound. Sounded like the bad one. Came right back. I will steer clear of the cheaper brands. Mechanic told me "moog" so I will try those. Thank you.
