Doing the oil and filter the other day and noticed the lower ball joint on passenger side to have shredded rubber seal. Of course they are sealed so no lube needed according to the wizard at Dodge that put these in the Grand Caravans. Anyways, its an 03 with 31,500 miles. Factory warranty expired in July. I have the extended Dodge warranty which will cover this. My questions are: Are there any recalls for this so I can avoid the deductible? Are ball joints supposed to be replaced in pairs? The other side looks ok, but I think they should both be replaced. Thanks to all. New to forum and I look forward to replies . Also, will they be replaced with one with a grease fitting? If no, can I demand one?
