Default Ball Joint

So I just learned that Ram trucks (2500 models anyway) do not have adjustable ball joints. WHY? This sucks as mine is out of spec. I hope they will work with it as I'm taking it in next week. I only have 2000 miles on it. It's a 2013 2500HD Diesel

If it's out of spec, then it will be covered under warranty and they will fix it. Keep us updated on the progress.

Yes, it is under warranty, and as you said they wil look at it this week and if to their satisfaction, if it is out of spec, they will replace the ball joint with the same, a non-adjustable ball joint, until it is in spec. I can't complain about that, it is sad that the manufacture decided to go with a non adjustable ball joint. When warranty is up I will change it out. Cost for a adjustable ball joint installed is $395.00. My choice.
