Speedworks at Jalan 222 in KL.

there wea one in JB also but it closed.

can try the singapore branch also but need to fix it up yourself at your own garage...

alternatively you can try the famous Fong Kim, Jeep Chee and Mann's Exhaust to ask...

Not sure if it is legal tho.. probably not....

contributed by bro Hysteria4u

Follow this link to see the part, and price in USD. can order also.

Has anyone replaced the lower ball joint (on the front knuckle) with this part? I understand that if using original part, need to replace the entire knuckle. I came across this after-market part from Moog, Part No: K90332. Installed, and found to be of good quality and more affordable replacement. ... OOG-K90332
