Roger that quality sucks.. many hours I think my problem is the extended length of the shock is too long allowing the control arms to kick out the ball stud. Some shocks have an extension buffer from what I've read that limit travel on a properly sized shock. Found info that says jacked up with the wheel touching the ground measure the distance from the tower to the lower control arm, subtract 1/2" for the buffer and find one with that total extended length. Now I'm pouring over cataloges looking.
