Hello all,
Has anyone ever performed a front-upper- control arm ball joint replacement only? I searched the Internet but could only find info on the lower ball joint. Can a non-rover mechanic perform this on an 06 4.2 v8? Thank you all in advance.

Sure, it's just a ball joint. Anyone can do it with the rigjt tools... except maybe a Land Rover dealership.

If the upper ball joint has gone there is a good chance that the bushes will also need doing. If so just replace the entire arm with bushes and ball joint fitted. Can be a DYI job even if the work area is a bit tight.

Thanks for your advice. However, I am not mechanically inclined. Will probably have a non rover mechanic perform the job.
