Bad ball joints?
Can bad ball joints and tie rods cause squeaking and rattling in the front suspension? My front end is a little loose and I know they cause that but there is also just some bad sounding rattles and squeaks. I have 180,000 miles on my truck and I had all the joints replaced in the fron end about 40,000 miles ago when I put my lift kit on. And im guessing the lift kit and bigger tires wore them out faster...Any help and suggestions are welcome. And I know I need new joints but could there be something else I need to replace as well?
