Very true but we do not need to file class actions for our ball joints like you do for your engine.

atleast the only damage looks to be the step bar and no body damage.

It maters not which brand you drive now days when it comes to ball joints, most are no longer serviceable like in years past. My F350 only has a few grease points on the front end.

Your comment has NOTHING to do with IFS or ball joint failure but with 161,000mi+ on my 6.0 I have zero complaints and I own it, no payments.
Try sticking on topic.

With the sub-forum topic being "off topic", what exactly is the topic?

Too funny. Little do you guys know I own a Denali. I don't play the manufacturer game.
But like this topic showed in the first post, in my field I can detect weaknesses. And all IFS trucks with upper/lower control arms have it. Once that one lower balljoint lets go you have immobilized failure, whether it's Toyota, Nissan, or GM. Unlike a solid axle truck such as Ford Super duty & Dodge/Ram 2500+, where you'd have to have complete upper and lower ball joint failure which is unlikely.
