99 Durango 4wd, 96k miles, 5.9L. Recently had upper ball joints replaced,
and only after few thousands one of them is going again. I'm not even sure
what brand the garage put it... they can't find out themselves.
In addition it looks like several joints in steering are going: pitman arm
joint with center arm is loose, and left inner tie rod end is loose as well.
Those joints probably are responsible for mushy steering feel...
Any recommendations on quality UBJs that will last? Looks like pitman arm
replacement is major PITA since one has to take out whole steering gear -
any recommendations on how to do this? Inner tie rod ends seems easy - is it
a good idea to replace both sides (although right side seems ok)?
