How many miles do ball joints usually go? Im at 120k right now.
Also the rotors looked much more than just an inch bigger than my stock size 03... they were so big the wheels just BARELY cleared. They were definitely at least 16's...
If they are off a '05, they're 10.9'' rotors & then all you'd need is '05+ ball joints. $50.00 sounds like a steal. At 120,000 on ball joints a tad loose perhaps. The calipers are bigger hence the wider ear spacing on the spindle's.
