    Hey guys,
    I found out that my lower ball joint isn't in that great of shape and I have a torn CV boot so I am going to replace both. My question is, what else should I replace while I'm at it? My Taco has 156k miles on it, I didn't know if any bushings/seals should be replaced while I have everything open. I'm also going to put some LR UCAs on while I'm at it (Previous owner did 2.5" spacer lift and it gets a little squirmy over bumps...)

    Thanks

    Check your tie rod ends. Check your inner wheel seals. Check for play in your wheel bearings. Check for play in the bushings of the steering rack. Check for play in the LCA and UCA bushings. Mark the LCA cams and pull them and grease them.

    Just about every front end part has been listed by other members with exception to CV and diff parts so........

    I would suggest researching your issues instead of getting people to speculate whats wrong with your truck then assuming what you should fix.


    My truck has had these replaced so far:
    UCA uniballs
    LCA bushings
    LCA cam tab bolts
    LCA BJ's
    Wheel bearings
    Outer tie rods

    Right, but I already know what my issues are, I just wanted to know what parts I should go a head and replace while I have everything torn apart.

    Do they make a complete bushing pack? Like energy suspension does for just about every car...
