Hey guys i will be replacing tie rods and upper and lower ball joints this up coming weekend and also installing an Icon adj. traction bar.

Is there anything else i should replace while i am down there? Thanks in advance.

Hub seals (the big yellow o-ring) and axleshaft seals (the ones on the inner shaft side of the u-joint yoke) come to mind...

If I were you I would lube all the brake parts for good measure. Its free and only takes a second but can save you in the long run! If any of the pis hang up look for bent ones, and run a wire wheel on them. My brakes feel like new from doing that stuff every oil change or so.

I just had the rotors and pads done about 5k ago but might as well throw some lube on there for good measure.
