There is a blanket recall on these ... Some owners have had them replaced on the recall three even four times ... I'm on my second set , and the third time it was in for the recall (the first time they just "inspected" them they failed 3 months later)

Where are you located ??? Canada people have had troubles getting them replaced more then once ... I have no idea why ... Stateside seems to replace them time and time again , Do not know if there is a federal law that makes it a "lifetime" recall or what

Called dodge dealership ( local) today and they were very helpful told them about the recall being an " inspection" of the ball joint and they also had no record of it being replaced so i will have a call back in the next few days once they find /get the parts and set up to get it fixed

Called hotline. Said since the recall was performed in 2002 and it has been more than the 3 year 30k mile warentee they will not replace them since mine are gone enough that they can't do an alignment. So now I ask a question. How the hell do I get that darn balljoint screw out of its little hole. I already got a little too carried away and pulled the driveshaft from the tranny while ripping the boot in the process. Anyone have any idea of how to get this one screw outta the hole since that's the only one I'm stuck on. Muchly appreciated if any info is on here by 2pm tomarrow because that is when I am going to start working on it again.

My 96 Avenger goes in tomorrow to have the recall work done. Although I went to dodge.com and checked the recall for my vin and it said there isn't one? That normal?

I really appreciate all the useful info you guys have posted.
