      Hey Mark, it's my buddy's car that has been giving him issues with the ball joints. I'll pass along your comments, thanks. FWIW, the problems with the noise surfaced after several hundred miles of driving on the new ball joints. Not sure how greasing them up more would fix it, but apparently it did?

      Actually, the shop fixing my friend's car originally (John Holt at Hot Wheels in Atlanta) ordered a BUNCH of stuff from Woodhouse, perhaps through you? He also had numerous conversations with your tech, but no luck pinpointing the problem. What do you think could have been the issue other than ball joints? Thanks!

      Boy I would really be suspect of the ball joints if you have more that a few 50-100 miles on them that dry. They do not take long to clearance themselves and get loose. I would suggest keeping an eye out on them and for what it is worth they don't take that much grease. If the boot is full and the seal is compromised because of this the grease will be everywhere and the joint will be trashed very quickly because of the possible contaminants.

      Good luck and I hope it is fixed for you,

      Mark
