Default Ball Joints

I'm going to have the ft suspension apart to replace the springs, struts and torn bushings.

Should I replace the ball joints at the same time?

My 2002 PT has 45K miles on it.

Anything else I should look at while I got it apart. The boots look good.

Thanks,
Andy

with the weight of the car on the tires grasp the grease fitting on the ball joint. if it moves around with a small amount of force the ball joint will need to be replaced. i got mine at the dealer and replaced the torn boots also. the new ball joints are dry and need to be greased.
