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?
