Ok I found out it's time to get some new end links. I know someone on here sells some really good ones that or someone knows a company that makes really good ones. Also anyone ever replaced hub assym. b4? I have a bad bearing, turns out it's one of the brand new ones I just bought :(. anywho I would also need to swap ball joints so anyone know how to do that? or does the hub come out of the knuckle or something. Shop wants over 500 to do this and I can't take it up the a** like that. Thanks
Wes

Are you talking about the front or the rear endlinks?

I have set of stock rear endlinks with used Energy polyurethane bushings and a set of brand new energy bushings to replace them.... you want?

No I don't need rear...yet :rolleyes: . You can tell their bad by listing for noises at slow speeds going over bumps or when swerving lft to right. You'll hear a light clicking noise. Mine actually snapped on the driver side when I was removing it so I know it was bad. AA sells them for 26 bucks a piece. Don't go to goodyear to have the work done they charge 120 per side and it's 26 bucks in parts and about 30 mmin of work.

That's normal. They are bad when the ball joints are broken, they are loose with lots of free play. Otherwise, they should be kinda tight, but able to turn a little bit.

Don't bother trying to replace just the hubs. It will cost you way more in parts and labor than if you just bought new knuckles off eBay. They are brand new Ford knuckles, 2 for $100. You can't beat that, considering the list price is $370 each, and they have new ball joints already in them.
