Replaced a control arm/ball joint 2 years ago on my 07 9-3 with a ProParts ball joint/ control arm. Torqued to spec and the alignment at least 3 times since (Firestone lifetime alignment) and the result is a worn out ball joint. I am replacing with with a genuine saab control arm/ ball joint like on the other side which has not been replaced in the 3 years I've owned it.
