Do u check the same way for both the upper and lower ball joints to see if there bad,which one,or both.
Or should both the upper and lower be replaced regardless which is bad. And should you go ahead and replace the CV joints to if your ball joints are bad and being replaced
Yes, and you can just replace the parts that are worn. Close inspection of the CV joints and ball joints would be required. If it is easy to replace the additional parts when the suspension is open then by all means do it!
