Seems like each month starting in Nov last year things are wearing out/falling apart on the Mazda. It's a 98 Mazda MPV 4WD
I was told I need the front lower ball joints replaced. The drivers side is worn and the wheel shakes fairly hard at 60 -64 mph. Not good. So I get parts for both sides and they go to install them. I get an earlier than expected call that the bolts are "so rusted they might snap off on removal, also the control arms need replacing as well." Then they tell me the strut bolts are in bad shape too and recommend the struts be replaced too.
WOW!!!!! Just PILE it all on top!!!!!
So, I CAN find the parts online cheaper than auto shops or dealers but it's still gonna COST me. Not to mention he INSTALL charges.
So I'm swallowing my Pride am asking for HELP on this site.
I HOPE the amount I THINK I need is enough.
Any thoughts and Help would be greatly appreciated.
