YOU CAN GET A FEW YEARS OUT OF A SET OF BALL JOINTS, BUT THEY WILL NEED TO BE GREASED REGULARLY. USUALLY YOU WOULD HAVE THEM GREASED AT THE SAME TIME AS YOU HAVE YOU CAR SERVICED(OIL CHANGE ECT). A NEW SET OF BALL JOINTS MUST BE INSTALLED CORRECTLY USING THE PROPER TOOLS OR BY A PROFESSIONAL. SOME MANUFACTURERS OF AFTER MARKET PARTS HAVE POOR QUALITY PARTS AND THEY DO NOT LAST AS LONG AS THE ORIGINAL MANUFACTURERS PARTS DO. MY FATHRE HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH HIS CHEV SUBURBAN. WE HAD TO REPLACE THE BOTTOM BALL JOINTS A SECOND TIME WHEN WE HAD ONLY A REPLACED THEM A YEAR BEFORE. LUCKLIY FOR US THE MANUFACTURER OF THE AFTER MARKET PARTS HAD A WARRNTY ON THE BALLJOINTS AND WE HAD THE PARTS REPLACED WITH A NEW SET FREE. YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK WITH THE PART SUPPLIER YOU PURCHASED YOUR PARTS FROM TO SEE IF ANY WARRANTIES APPLY.
