I'm shopping at some of the online Dodge parts houses and found a place that has the tension stuts (lateral arms) for less than $30. Can that be right??

Interesting information, I have a clunk on the front left when I drive down my alley and it pulls pretty hard when I drive on grooved roads or bumpy roads. I have jacked up the front-left corner of the car and pushed/pulled on the wheel as hard as I can without finding any play at all or hearing any noise. I assume if these go bad it would take a reasonable amount of force (read: more than I can apply by hand) to cause the issue to appear?... Maybe I found my culprit!
I have after market Bilstiens all the way around and Moog outer tie rod ends . The Bilstiens make a whole lot of difference in how The "Beast" handles.

Hey guys I did my tension struts today ball joints were well worn and pretty sloppy along with torn bushings. What I will recommend to everyone doing this is get new ball joint nuts. Mine stripped clean on the passenger side and with a whole lot of patience we were able to get the driers side off but it wanted to pull the threads out. So the car is stuck in my in laws garage until Monday when the dealer opens again and I can get two new ball joint nuts.
So save yourself my troubles and get new ball joint nuts.
