ball joint
 
is it true need to replace control arm

Yes and no. It's easier to just replace the whole damn thing.

If you replace just the BJ you'll have to grind off the heads of the rivets.

Look up the cost of both and decide how much your time is worth.

after putting on moog ball joints.... next time i probably will just buy the control arm.
grinding/drilling those rivets was too much a PITA.


edit: actually i remember why now. i had poly bushings that I didnt want to redo, so thats why i went with Moog

But the also the bolts going into the body can be a pita to break loose
