dan if im not mistaken didnt your ball joint fall of at the race? oh well I failed spelling happens. on my s10 the ball joints never actually fell apart but ehy were pretty much destroyed every month or so. i even went to CST and bought there "special" ball joints. they worked for i think 6 or so monthes till i changed the ball joints to uni balls.the words s10 and ball joints do not go together and a ball joint failure is very bad i wouldnt want that to happen to anyone i have seen pictures of some carnage after it happend.
