In response to In response to 12




          

Did you check the rubber bushing that sits on top of the spring and under the top hat? These can degrade over time and cause noise as the spring moves in the top hat. There is also a rubber bushing at the top of the shock where the shock bolts to the top hat.

As far as ball joints go, if you have them unbolted from the front end and you put a nut on them, you should need ~23 ft/lbs of force to rotate them. If you need substantially less force than that to rotate them, replace.

The front upper ball joint is the same size as the ball joint on the rear toe control arms. You can buy the rear arms for less than you can buy the ball joints. If you check CAPS, the part numbers for both ball joints are the same.
