ball joints where a bear... i had to make a spacer on the lathe to get them out as the press would not touch them... after i got the knuckle off the pegs on the ball joints just flopped around, they where shot! be sure that they go in strait that is clutch... i rented a ball joint press from o rileys and then the 4x4 adapter kit from autozone... just the ball joint press will not work... after the nuckle is off it is prety much press out old press in new... ther is a great how to online i snagged and used... the tie rods where a bastard... went though a whole can of propane on them... (was out of map gas)
got the pads and rotors in a ebay auction... 2nd set we have got from them (my buddy has them on his Evo) they are powerstop though... really nice!
to check them if your wheel moves around if oyu push on the top or bottom while the wheel is off the ground and it moves at all, bad ball joints... i got a complete kit for tie rods and ball joints on ebay as well for 99 bucks! well worth it!
