Um, bluskye... the new control arm comes with the new ball joint and threads. He just needs to get the old one out and vice grips would be fine here (or a pipe wrench or something like that)

Back when I was an automotive tech, we used to have an intake cleaning kit that we could run on a car. You mounted a sprayer over the throttle body and injected over about 20 - 30 minutes a cleaning...

I installed Dunlop WinterSport 3D DSST Runonflat tires from tirerack.com, mounted on new rims. I'm very happy with them so far and we've had record snow this November already.

New plugs doesn't mean one isn't bad.

What do you mean by "the misfire has no pattern"

Do you mean the cylinder that misfires isn't always 6?
