Well...ended up getting TRW for some reason, but, they were $180 for all four, which wasn't bad at all compared to everyone else's prices.
So...knocked the old ones out...and, they were bad. As a matter a fact, they were very bad. The balls didn't only pivot, but, they went up down all around, and weren't much bigger than the hole...so...yeah, it needed them.
But, installed the new pretty ball joints...
The squeaking is gone
Also, my 6" of play in the steering wheel went down to about 3". So...checking further into it, everything is in perfect like new shape...besides the pitman arm. You see the pitman arm move about 1/4", then the wheels begine to turn...lol
So, ordered a new one of those, will be doing that Thursday. Didn't get the exhaust or tranny done today, but, we figured thursday since it had to go back up on the rack anyway.
So...yay...no more squeakage or fear of a wheel popping off.
Handles much tighter as well.
