Are the brake caliper bolts tight? Brake pad bracket bolts tight? Rotors need replacing? Can you also 'feel' the popping in the brake pedal?

Mine just started the same thing last week. Its my lower left front ball joint. Jack up the front end and CAREFULLY pry with a crow bar inbetween the ball joint and outer asembly, or whatever its called. Just dont mess up the abs sensor or anything. it will want to slide around. Now the question is where to get ball joints, and are there greasable ones?

well, i needed an alignment before this problem started cause my front tires are badly worn (duallie), and i figured i should do bushings because they are dried out. So... now thats bushings, ball joints, tires, alignment... ouch. i did find a link for ball joints and everything needed to complete the job here powerstrokeshop.com. So far seems to be a good price too.

The only BJ's to use are the Moog greasable. Powerstrokeshop.com sells the entire kit at a good price. Ask for Bob.

Purchased the kit yesterday. You mean I could have gotten a discount? o well. still a good price from what i could find online.

One question. Is the "F81Z 3254CB Hub seals" the seal that is also responsible for holding the vacume in for the hubs? I had a bad roller bearing, and replaced all the orings, but still have one hub that leaks. Id like to fix that while its apart. Thanks for the help, in advanced.
