The ball joint can't be replaced on an original Lemforder, but you might not have an original arm. Meyle HD arms have replaceable ball joints.

I considered those but ended up staying I almost always do.

There are cheaper CAs around (Febi/bilstein makes some), but the long run, cheaper arms might end up costing more.

Oh, you can get meyle HDs with ca bushing mounted already, which makes replacement easier on you.

Usually, when removing CAB from CA, you'll mess up the case you didn't know.
I'm so depressed. No one wants to come see me in NYC: Sat, Oct. 8, 6 p.m. at Greenwich Village Comedy Club.
Mangofy your E46!
