Question Murano balljoint replacement

Hi,

I have a 2003 Murano and I noticed my passenger-side balljoint is loose - to the point the wheel has about 1 inch play. Question: do I need to replace the entire control arm or can I just replace the balljoint. The dealer told me I need to replace the entire control arm - but then... it's the dealer guy talking...

It is only available as a complete control arm.

Thanks. Bought the control arm and changed it... Surprisingly, the dealer had the best price - even aftermarket part prices were much higher...

Is it possible to replace the ball joint only?

No. The Murano balljoints are part of the control arm. You can't separate the balljoint from the rest of the control arm.
I replaced them on both sides. The dealer's price for the control arms was significantly better than aftermarket prices. I never use aftermarket parts for steering/suspension. On a separate note - I replaced my tie rod end yesterday and noticed the joint itself on the dealer's part is sealed better than the aftermarket ones I used as a replacement on other cars. It said "Made in Japan"...
