Both upper control arms needed to be replaced due to excessive wear. After the oil consumption fiasco, I'm pretty much done with this vehicle.
Had to replace due to excess wear. Suburban not driven hard - these failed prematurely. In addition, repair by replacing just ball joints made 3 times more expensive due to GM design. The upper control arms had to be replaced making the parts very expensive and the labor 3 times more than normal.
