Yeah, so the other night I kept hearing a noise from my front suspension, so I figured it's either the ball joints or the lower control arm bushings. I decided to grease the ball joint and see if the noise would go away.....well, it didn't Then on my way home, just as I pulled into my condo complex, I lost the ball joint on the passenger side :mad:



So I bought some nice MOOG OEM replacement ball joints, and I figured if I have to remove my lower control arm to do the ball joint, I may as well replace the worn bushings.....and if I'm gonna replace the bushing, I may as well replace them with polyurethane bushings.....and if I'm gonna replace my front control arm bushings, I may as well replace all the bushings with poly bushings. Well, I picked up the ball joints yesterday, and these should be here tomorrow :D:D:D

Funny how one thing leads to the other, eh?

what kind of sound were you hearing anyways?
i was hearing a sound too, like something was loose, coming from my left front.
i thought that my strut was failing, but when i was packing my wheel bearings yesterday, i found out that my caliper was missing the lower stud... wtf man.

anyways, hav fun with the install.

Yeah, replace one tie rod, the other side goes bad.....replace both sides inners and outers. Ball Joint makes noise, add grease and break it, buy 2 new ball joints and bushing kit......it just never ends......at least all of the inportant steering and suspension components are new. New inner/outer tie rods, new ball joints, new eibach springs, new Tokico struts/shocks, new front wheel bearings/seals, new front rotors and pads. Except for the body and chassis.....this car is almost all brand new.....lol

So the noise, it was a hollowish sounding clunk that would happen as I hit bumps or potholes. It was coming from the passenger side front.

I'll do a nice writeup with pictures when I install them :)
