I would assume if you are hearing "noises again" its time for a BJ swap!

Just checking these are the correct parts. From Sewell website.

Ball Joints-Ball Joint Set (L&R) Part #: 433403941502 (In Stock) $191.78
Front Suspension-Outer Tie Rod Set Part #: 454605901502 (In Stock) $146.42

Total price without shipping: $338.20

This seems kinda steep based on other prices I have seen in this thread, thoughts?

I was not aware I was eligible for a "clublexus" sewell discount, where can I find more information?

Haven't read all the comments, but if you are replacing the tie rod ends, there's really no sense in trying to remove them from the LBJ. Just remove the LBJ, then twist the LBJ/tie rod end off as one unit, instead of pressing the tie rod end out of the LBJ and taking them off separately.
Saves a little bit of time!
