Re: [DML] To replace or not to replace...


It might be a good idea to replace the bushings as they simply get old and 
the rubber looses it's properties over time. They might look ok without any 
cracks but they might be softer than they should be (or harder...)
The wheel bearings.. well, that depends on how many miles you have on them 
now. If they are from the factory it might be a good idea to replace them - 
their not that expensive.
What I would do in your case is REPLACE BOTH lower ball joints!! And get 
them for one of the vendors! I had a cross referenced ball joints on my car 
and one of them failed without warning - read: no fun. Replace them... just 
in case.

Good luck
