Its the lower joints that go out first anyway.
I didn't know I needed joints at the time because the last time I checked them they were fine, the only reason I'm thinking they are shot is because I'm at 92k right now and I haven't touched them once.
My uppers seem to be in great condition to be honest, cus I just installed the alignment cam and had to take them off to get the new bolt cam in. The difference between the stock arms and the MOOG arms are the built-in ball joint correct? Otherwise why would we NEED to replace the arms? Just because we are replacing the lowers? If that's the case then I understand...
Not trying to be sarcastic or anything I'm just really really curious.
