Smile top and bottom control arm shot????????

Ok so I just replaced my bottom and top control arm on the left side. So I got some questions....


I have a 2010 dodge Dakota

1st . From what I know its not normal for them to go at the same time. Is this not A little premature ? Anyone else have this issue.

2nd. Well now I need a front end alignment no big deal.... but the question is will it cause the truck to shake???? Or is the right side shot to ( haven't taken that side apart yet ).

3rd. has anyone ever bought after market parts on line. It seems to be a lot cheaper. I just spent $550 on a top and bottom control arm ( the bottom control arm has a life time warranty the top I had to get some were else because they didn't have any ).

Im also looking at getting my brake disc's on line to. Good idea or bad?




thanks for the help

I bought just about all my upper and lower control arms online through Amazon...they had the best deals on Moog parts. Had no issues at all. Got my drums and rotors from www.brakeperformance.com
Good price and they have held up pretty good. They also come with a warranty.

As long as you stick with the right name brand when it comes to suspension parts you shouldn't have to worry about much. I took a small gamble with the brake parts...but several guys on the forum gave them a thumbs up and especially for the price I have been extremely satisfied

Ya that's what I thought. I've been looking at a few different places for my suspension. I was looking into that place last night. And I'm probably gonna go with them.

Also I just replaced my pads about a month ago. With getting new discs does that mean ill have to get new pads to again?

Ideally you should replace the pads when installing new rotors.
