cool Brought in the CV for service

Transmission Flush
Coolant Flush
and Oil change.
However,
They are suggesting the following :
Idler Arm Replacement
Lower Ball Joints
Pitman Arm
Left Outer Tie Rod
Front end alignment

Should I wait it out or should I replace these parts right away ?

Do you trust this shop? Those items do wear, and may need replacement. You can check them yourself, then decide. Joe

Excellent point Joe. (I didn't think of that. I just assumed he took the car to a mechanic he trusts). If you don't know the reputation of the shop or have prior experience with them, you might want to get a 2nd opinion. As you know, some of those parts could lead to an accident if they fail on you at the wrong time. If the "suggested" repairs prove to be legit, I'd get them done ASAP. -Coop
