My wife has 08 Patriot (POS) and just found out last night while changing the Brakes at 64k that the front two lower ball joints are hosed. I see this thread has been dead for awhile but do I understand correctly that you have to replace the entire control arm to replace the ball joint?

Front suspension repairs twice this year, tie rod ends, and lower control arms, under 45K Km.
Repaired under warranty, but what can we expect when they engineers use Dodge Caliber parts which are not the caliber a JEEP requires.

This thread scares me. I have an '10 Riot. With 17000 on it, so far, so good.

That was generally early on, mostly '07/'08. I wish I had saved my LCA so that I could have made up a set to swap out for "next time". Hopefully they have improved the vendor parts.

Add my 2008 Patriot Ltd. to the tie rod replacement list at 57k miles. Of course the warranty has expired. It may very well be my last Chrysler product.

OMG! This is the third thread I've read about tie rods! My 2007 Patriot got them replace at 60,000 miles. It's a conspiracy!

I tend to blame the parts suppliers. Moog's are better quality. If they can do it so, can the people who supply the factory.

Ok so the dealer just told me my tie rods are going on my 07 Patriot with only 42k miles. Tie rods I can sort of accept but they're telling me they're non-replaceable because they are part of the whole rack and pinion assembly. Says has to order the whole assembly for $1026.00! Anyone know if this is true of if the tie rods can be replaced by themselves? Thanks

Here's the parts diagram for the steering set up. The tie rod ends are separate pieces.
