Warranty from ball joint problems?
 
I recently had a ball joint explode on me. The top of the thing broke completely off which allowed the housing to grind a 1/2 " deep groove in my spindle. The ball joint was only 3 months old. The parts dealer gave me a new joint but what can i do about the spindle? Does the manufacturer have anything to do with this? The parts dealer said that they wouldn't warranty any consequential damage on a truck like mine as they believe the damage was caused by off-roading. The damage was caused by off-roading but I feel that if a company manufacturs a product for a truck like mine then the product should hold up to some moderately rough firebreak roads.

That is total BS...which manufacturer is it, I want to avoid them at all costs. That is very dangerous, and I agree with the MOOG comment.

It was the old Mcquay Norris stuff. To bad because it is the only none Moog part on the suspension. I was low on cash when i bought it, now i guess i should have waited.
