I'm very surprised you're on the original CV boots, tie rods and ball joints.

The original tie rods and ball joints in my 71 T/A at 140,000 miles were in perfect shape. They were all caked with grease so they were definately over lubed. All the rubber bushings were shot after 32 years.
I doubt the replacement parts will last that long.

JCR,
I'm surprised too I have the orig CV Boots. Maybe spraying WD - 40 on them at every oil change has helped preserve them?
No noises heard from the boots
Ball joints & tie rods get greased every 3000. Still seem tight.
Actually the RR ball joint was replaced due to the grease boot disintegrating mysteriously in 1996

one ton with 1,020,000 km. Original rear end, drive shaft, and 1 original rotor "don't turn them", the other one broke. The rest of the truck has been replaced part by part.

Harry,
Just curious, as you obviously have a very thorough record keeping on your car maintenance. Do you know what the total cost of all these repairs made?
