cpone: How many miles do you have on your GS?
I have 118k on my GS right now
edro925: Sounds like its time for me to change my ball join. I just bought the car about 2 months ago and it is making crackling loud noise on the right front end. I wasn't sure what it was but now I should check the ball joint. Does anyone know if its a good idea to change both left and right? Or just the one that is needed to be replaced?
It's always a good Idea to replace both at once; If one is going bad the other one will be soon.
Micdizo: Yeah luckly mine went out backing out of the parking space at work. But I still messed up the fender getting in on and off the tow truck. It sir was a pain to get the old ball joint off though. But my gs has real high miles.
Yea my fender is still messed up from it landing on the tire...My bumper got pulled out a little bit when they towed my car, so I have to get the bolt to rebolt it back on. It sucks...
kaaalvy: oh geeez ive got the creekings...how much does this cost to replace? and where do you think i can get it done at
I think the lower ball joints are around 60 bucks for one from autozone and places like that. As for getting it replaced, any repair shop should be able to do it or if you want to do it yourself there is a DIY write up on it somewhere on here if I find it i'll post. If you plan on replacing it yourself or having someone else do it watch out for you ABS sensor it is easy to pull on it/ rip the wiring inside of it. If that happens there is a DIY on here how to fix it.
