Think I'm gonna buy another pair or passengers side at least it continues squeaking bad.

Installed mid 2010 - now nearly 4 years old
The squeaking got so bad couldn't stand it ball joint was siezed. Bought 2 good looking used ones from California from EBAY. Running wonderfully. The $130 squeaky APEX control arms lasted nearly 100,000km.
