The JK isn't the only Chrysler product with defective ball joints. I own a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Quadcab; at 60,000 miles the right and left tie rods were worn out. Since it was no longer under Chrysler warranty I paid to have new Moog ball joints and link installed. This week I received a notice from Dodge my truck was being recalled to replace the ball joints and link. This is an expanded recall from earlier this year. Like many new vehicles these TREs did not have grease zerks. The new ones do.
