Lowering Control Arms!You cannot lower the control arms on these cars! If you want to lower the car there are limit switches (they look like tiny little shocks) one on each control arm and one in the center of the rear over the center unit (where the ring and pinion gears are. There are 3 positions to place the limit switches you will have to figure out which way to go with them to lower the car. They may already be in the lowest position? If you have seen these cars riding real low it could just be the car has bad airbags????? These 3 positions holes are not going to change the ride height much maybe and inch up or down if that!
The ball joint is an integral part of the lower control arms. Ergo you must replace the entire lower control arm. Dealer cost is about $450 ea there's no aftermarket availability that I have found. My car's not worth the price of the parts ro replace the arms. RATS.
The ball joints are riveted or pressed into the upper and lower control arms, then the spindle is bolted to the ball joints.
Instead of using coil springs on the front suspension torsion bars are used from the lower control arms to the frame ( my 1995 Ford Explorer 4x4 has torsion bars , my dads 73 Dodge Coronet had torsion bars ) If you look at a lower front suspension that has torsion bars you will see the torsion bars going from the lower control arms rearward
