My vehicle started making a rattling noise and the front drivers tire was showing signs of wear. I took it to the shop for a wheel alignment and was told the lower ball joint needed to be replaced. I am waiting for the part. It'll be replaced next week.

My ball joints were replaced in '06 but it has happened again this year. Does Chrysler keep replacing them. I know that there is normal wear and tear but is this a structural/design issue

We turned into a parking on December 23, 2015 and it sounded like the bottom literally fell out. We managed to get all the way into the parking lot and called a tow truck. The lower ball joint on the driver side was completely broken. The upper control arm was also broken. Needless to say the wheel was no longer attached. We had no idea there was a recall. It cost us $779 to fix it, which could have been much worse, considering the dealership wanted $1800! I wish I'd known about the recall.
I have a jeep liberty 65 edition in June my driver side ball joint snapped. Without warning and now in December the passenger side has snapped while going down the interstate
