i replaced my control arms at a dealer and they are already dead. not sure if its the upper or lower, but its once again squeeking. Is there anything that can be done? the car has been lowered(a lot) and i know that they are probably gonna say thats why. The driver side C/A are still orignal and haven't showed any sign of failure. this is starting to bother me.

Wow 2,000,000 miles! Would have to say you got the life out of them and more. :lol:

What year? installed suspension?

They are known to go prematurely. I believe it is a DIY. One source for them is at ECS Tuning.

Lowering the car completely changes the geometry of the suspension. The lower the angle, the more stress you put on the CA's.. How much is the car lowered? more than 2" :?
