So i was looking on different forums and read a few posts on how 4th gen ludes front lower ball joints are the same as rear lowers. And i neeeed new rear lowers but dont have the money to buy the whole f***ing knuckle and all which is stupid you have to do in the first place .

Just get a ball joint puller? Anyways, you wouldn't have to buy the whole knuckle, just the control arm at most.

That seems retarded. Take it to a shop and see what they can do for you.

Yeah one shop said the same thing so i was just hoping what i read was true because you can get front lower ball joints for $38 a piece at napa which is a hell of a lot cheaper than upwards of $300!
