    Default 07 z71 upper control arm bushions and balljoints

    Has anyone had any problems with upper control arm bushions and balljoints on a 2007 Silverado Z71? I have 55000 miles on mine and they are toasted! I'm running a 2'' leveling kit on front. Thanks for any input. deepsouth

    ive replaced them with less miles but not common

    now that they want everything in a sealed unit it will be more and more common. grease can only last so long before it disipates. great way for the parts people to make more revanue

    I have an 07 as well with under 60,000 KMS and had new ball joints put in last week. Warranty is a good thing.

    Thanks Mike for the reply. Once I get these replaced, I'll need to have a front end alignment done correct?

    If you replace them with polyurethane, they will be the last set of UCA bushings you will ever need, plus use Spicer UBJ's as well.
