    I have a 97 Accord and I’m about to change the captured front rotors. I saw the updated video on how to do this without taking the whole knuckle off the car. Great video BTW. It got me thinking if I should change the lower ball joints at the same time. I last changed the rotors, wheel bearings, and lower ball joints 89K miles ago. I used Honda OEM parts. The rotors are warped now, but the wheel doesn’t have any play in it when I try to move it up and down when the car is on a jack. Should I bite the bullet and change the lower ball joints?
    (I changed the lower ball joints in the car’s earlier life. They were Taiwan specials and only lasted 52K miles. That’s when I switched to OEM 82K miles ago). Thanks! John

    Maybe a better question would be: What is the average lifetime of lower and upper ball joints and tie rod ends for Honda Accord OEM parts?
    Thanks!
