Front end issues

ReviewEvery thing is great but the front end of these trucks. At 89000 miles I had the upper driver side ball joing literally blow apart. The dealership, under my extended warranty, replaced all 4 ball joints on the truck and both upper control arms. After further investigation I found that Dodge Durangos from the years 1996 to 2000 are under investigation by the National Traffic and Highway Safety Administration for this problem. Also, the rotors on these trucks are undersized for the trucks weight. In the 95,000 miles I have had the truck the rotors have been replaced twice and I have replaced the front breaks 3 times.
Best FeaturesThe 4.6L V8 provides enough power to haul or pull anything.
Worst FeaturesUpgrade the front ends so as to relieve these trucks from the ball joint and rotor problems.
