2000 Explorer and lower ball joints
I have a 2000 Explorer (a two ton 4wd truck with a passenger body). Never been off-road. Never hit any curbs. Been real gentle with it. Just found out my truck needs lower ball joints and a second set of brakes (due to failing ball joints) at 28,000 miles. Costing me $1,000 dollars.
This is is a big disappointment. How could my vehicle ever be spec'ed or advertised for off road use?
Anyone else have a similar experience?
Thanks and regards,
