A arm

I went for a ride yesterday and the top a arm came out of the spindle and pulled the cv apart. Nothing broken just put it back together but check the bolts so it does not happen to you. It does well in the snow as long as its not to deep. I think it might float if I could get 33s under it but they wont fit unfortunately. It did go over hard crusted snow.

I dropped an upper A arm ball joint myself, after studying the way it's put together, I recommend replace the stock bolt with one that has some unthreaded shank on it and grade 8 hardeness. Everyone should at least check the torque on theirs. The ball joint has a notch in the spindle that allows the bolt to pass and should make it unable to come out, but it wallows the threads off and falls out. The longer shank would resist this. While you have it apart, put some good boots on it.

Yes, the picture is of tie rod, but I bet the boots will fit ball joints also, Checker Auto#13566
