    ball joints

    after taking my rims off it appears my ball joints are worn out. I'm just wondering if its gonna make a big difference to get higher end ball joints? would any do fine? or would my rims wear out the lower end ones a lot quicker?

    is it lowered or stock? Do you like changing out ball joints or not?

    I would buy Moog ball joints, they seem to be the best and last the longest.

    yea already found that out. lol. well i got my buddy to put in my ball joints. steering was still a little pully to each side randomly. so i take it to a shop to get alligned and they tell me the upper ball joint on the left side is worn out.. then i told him it was brand new n he said it wasnt tight enough.. so i take it back to my buddy he said its fine.. but after i left the shop they said there was a loose bolt on the control arm.. which totally made my steering 100% ... now i dont even think i need an allignment.
