Having a problem with my Duster. The thread on the upper left ball-joint is stripped, same on the control arm. The aligment is all wrong. WTF?

Almost all you can do is replace your ball joints if they're bad screw them back in and then tack weld them in so they don't move OR replace everything with tubular ''A'' arms and new everything. Whichever way you choose it won't be free...unless you're real lucky. Might be a good time to change from rubber to ....

Cheap insurance to go with new A arms. when you say the alignment is all wrong, are you talking about caster, camber etc. New arms may solve some of your problem.

You could weld in new sleeves( common circle track part) but it would be a whole lot easier to get new arms.

Found a good A arm in Laval, QC, time for a drive, with the Satellite.
