Went to change my control arm yesterday and the GM arms don't come with castle nuts. The ball joint had been changed like 10 years ago and unknown to me they bungled up the castle nut bad. I didn't take it apart. Figured I'd ask here before I had to go to the dealer. Thanks.

I replaced the arms on my traverse. With new ball joints. With some aftermarkets.
Then the ball joints started making noise some 20k miles later. So i put in gm arms... but to my surprisse, the gm arms didnt come with the ball joint nuts, and the failed cheapies nuts were diff size.
Went to several auto parts. No one had them.
So i drove to a junkyard and got the nuts of of an acadia, enclave, outlook, and traverse. ..
The pair i chose slipped right on.
