Good to be here. Found some great information so far.

Looking for a little help if anyone has any ideas. I'm getting movement on my lower (straight) control arm at the ball joint end. The bolt has been cross thread and is only half tightend leaving quite a bit of room for movement. Is the ball joint something that can be replaced on its own or would i have to buy a whole new arm?

Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.

If you are talking on the front end, the lower ball joints for both lower arms are built into the end of the arm, so you will need a new arm. Should be a not too bad to get item over there.

Thanks for your help, part ordered and should be back to full health shortly :)

I'd replace the figure eight joints as well, since the straight arms do half the job.

Welcome! The ST205 is the best Celica IMO. I hope she treats you well.
