Here pics of the old ball joints.
I just got changed.
I did this after 86,000Kms. No off-road driving. 95% highway. Only me, my wife and mi little 1 year boy.
It starts making metal-metal sound when going over smalls holes.
I remove the rubber cover of the joint to have a better images.
You should not let your 1 year old drive through them puddles !!! LOL
How is it one is well greased and the other is dry as a bone. A bit rusted as well. Are they sloppy in the sockets. I changed one arm and I could not feel the play or slop in the ball joint at all but it seem to move a bit when it was on the vehicle. Maybe ever so slight wear. The ball joint may cost as much at the full arm. But I don't have a press to push new joints in even if I could source them here.
