Ball joints busted

My car is lowered with H&R sport spings (1.5" front, 1.2" rear) with tokico illmina shocks. I have a ball joint camber kit in the front and rear.. which I'm not even sure if I need.

Anyway, the ball joints are busted, could I go back to factory control arms and get an alignment since my car isn't lowered by much? The only reason I got them in the first place was to be on the safe side. Is it possible to just change the ball joints on an after market camber kit?

Thanks in advance.. I'll post pics later

what kit did you get? I would think that some of that stuff is covered under warranty.

I haven't had any problem running the stock ball joints on my setup which is exactly like yours except i have the h&r race springs instead of the sport.

I actually ended up buying the stock rear upper arm bar and stock front upper arms so I'm taking off the camber kits completely. Hopefully my ride will be a bit smoother after changing them out.
