Re: rear lower outer pivot bushing at knuckle
Have the boots on the ball-joints gone bad?
The boots on these bushing fail more with age than mileage.
The 5 hrs to R&R just the ball joints seems a bit much.
Also, the rear suspension has a guide link and wishbone on each side that wear and cause tramlining (rear suspension steering).
I replaced all that rear suspension stuff ($800 in parts) at 100k mi.
The ball joint on the guiding link was pretty loose and I should have been replaced sooner.
