    Replacing ball joints on an Abarth

    Can the front lower control arm ball joints be changed out or does the control arm have to be replaced ? I want to replace the oem control arms on my Sport with something stronger. I've found a set of Abarth control arms off a 2012 model that I want to buy but ,I'm having a time getting someone to say that they will fit my car.

    The aftermarket DNA control arms allow the ball joints to be replaced. Does anyone have these? I would like to know how they are for street use, in terms of noise, harshness, longevity of the uniball joints? They must reduce unsprung weight and I assume improve handling performance.

    Try these. I just replace my OEM front lower control arms. Much better price than from the dealer, and a stronger part (what my mechanic said).

    I also replace the OEM rubber bushings with Powerflex purple street polyurethane ones. Noticable improvement.

    The people I know who run them speak highly of them, but nobody has had them installed long enough to find out how long the joints will last. Definitely worth a try.

    Looks like a reasonable replacement but I doubt it's any stronger than the OEM ones, given that they're cast in a special way specifically for strength and steering feel to an extent. Take a look at the standard Fiat 500 control arm some time if you want to see a wimpy part.
