upper ball joint help...
I've been hearing a popping sort of sound from the front end. I assumed it was bad shocks, so i replaced the driver's side (was shot).
But I still hear it. I hopped under it again and noticed the upper ball joint boot was torn. I pumped it full of lube for now to make sure it has SOME grease in it.
Question is, how hard is it to replace? I see autozone and such have the joint and arm assembly for about $60.
Will i need an alignment for this?
