Because they don’t even look at the tools when you bring them back lol
Yep! They were pretty annoyed when I asked to look and check kit completeness when I was getting it. The store is 20 miles from my house so I wanted to avoid another 40 mile round trip.

Indeed, however on the 2500s, there is no lower control arm. I'll assume the 1500s do. I know my old envoy did. But on the 2500 burb its a torsion bar suspension, so you MUST press in a new ball joint. God I wish they had bolt on BJs.


Or use AC DElco:



Or use Delphi:

I'll be damned, I guess I never paid close enough attention. When I replaced the lower control arms on the envoy it was reasonable because they were rusted out. That said, for 400 bucks, I'll just use the press lol.
