They did need to be replaced earlier. I have been complaining about
lousey handling etc for a couple of years now, and my mechanic
insisted that the front end was tight. Now I'm telling him that they
need to be replaced. This also brings up another point. Why am I
paying $29.00/year for Mass state inspection? This car should have
failed two months ago when I had it inspected.
As far as doing the work myself, I would like to but I'm getting too
old for this kind of work. Also, I never seem to have the right tools
for the job. Don't you need some kind of press to remove the ball
