You can't replace just the front lower ball joint?
The front lower ball joint has failed in your 2002-2006 Mitsubishi Lancer and there is not an available OE-replacement for it. This front ball joint cannot be serviced-meaning there's not a grease fitting available.If contaminants get in, they can't be flushed out causing problems. The result leads to the entire control arm having to be replaced. We here at DST know how frustrating that can be and have the solution.
