    What to replace? Poor front end performance.

    I am going to be replacing my severely worn ball joints on my 2012 JK with 125k miles. My question is, what else should I replace while I have it apart? Are there items that will be easy access, or might fail soon?

    I am having a bad “loose front end” feeling. I have replaced the tie rod/drag link/track bar last year.... so I am doing some additional diagnostics.

    U-joints? Axle Hubs? Bearings?

    125k?... everything besides the drag link/track bar is original?

    I have replaced the majority of the suspension, But nothing in the hub assembly at this point.

    Ball Joints & Unit Bearings would be a good start.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
