As for the wear, both front tires were wearing the same. I ordered the LCA's off of rockAuto and it came in below 400. The way I look at is if I can get brand new parts and do it myself I may be better off than just replacing the ball joints on an assembly that could need replacement down the road. I don't want to have to replace the bushings in a year or so. My next question is... if I lift this thing will I have to get a new LCA? I know usually you swap out the UCA's, right? I'm new to this so feel free to educate me if you have the time.
You don't need either. People end up replacing the UCAs with an improved offroad cersion bc they were out faster when lifted. The most popular is made by JBA, jeepinbyal.
