After reading through some of the posts, I can't help but to notice there was (is?) a problem with the Patriot's ball joints. We own a 4X2 2011 model; has the ball joint problem been corrected? What would be the average cost of replacing the ball joints? Thanks for everyone's help!

Wondering if any owners pre-dating the 2011 model year are witness to the "advertised" improvement in the suspension components of the 2011/2012 models? Did Jeep use a better design or more durable parts, or maybe even improved quality control to reassure a new owner?
My 2007 is making lots of popping sounds from the front end in various positions. Dealer looked at it and found nothing wrong. It's getting worse and I had another shop look at it yesterday, nothing found. So I'm going to investigate further, but not sure what's going on. 60k miles. Might be a bad strut.
