So my passenger balljoint started making a rubbery squeaky sound, so I had mechanic/friend fix it. He said balljoint looked fine but still replaced it.
Now, my drivers side is making same noise. Its full of grease. Is it time to replace? Jack up car and no play up/down or left/right.

96 gt no suspension mods if that matters. Also passenger side had no grease fitting, drivers side does.

If the joint is good and you dont mind the squeakin ,,then it would be ok..you sure its coming from the ball joint..

Yes when I replaced pass side it quit, still hasn't came back. Atleadt not on passenger side. My drivers side has grease fitting and its full of grease. It looks fine. Did they come factory with or without fittings?

If it isnt the ball joint it would be lower control arm bushings.

Ill triple check later but 99% sure its balljoint. My control arm bushings are pretty bad tho. But I had tire off and it was balljoint squeaking. I tried rubbing grease on the outside bit didn't work. Also tried putting grease in it
