Dodge Repair/'05 cirrus/stratus/sebring: rear upper ball joint


How do I replace the rear upper ball joint on my 2005 dodge stratus

Hi Joseph,
According to the manual if thers is excessive movement in that joint you have to replace the entire upper control arm. That is described in 5 pages of the '05 manual which I can copy and attach to an email I would send to you directly. I need to know your email address but when you tell me that don't use the @ symbol, instead use "at", or the address is automatically erased.
It is a lengthy process to replace the upper arm so be sure it is needed to be replaced. Why did it fail?
