When I changed them on my 318i, the new ball joints were loose in one control arm, I had to change the whole thing instead... maybe the control arm was ****ed, I don't know.

You have to change the whole control arm.

^ If you have a press and a bit of common sense, you can change them separately.

But, most people change the whole arm... haha

It's the easiest doesn't require a press.
