Good, because that's the replaceable one. I'll probably change them out when the suspension comes. Just to be sure.

Anyone notice any difference in driving feel after changing old ball joints? I need to change both of mine anyways, but I'm just curious.

Yes. I did mine when I had the suspension torn down and they weren't all that bad. The boot was shot, so I decided to spring for the parts. Glad I did; it made a world of difference.

Hint: buy OEM (or equivalent), not the cheaper knockoffs. Ball joints is not someplace to cheap out.

In what way did it change? I might go ahead and replace the lowers when I do my brakes next, after tires.

Feels tighter. Less play in the steering.
