There is a squeaky rattling noise coming from my front end when I hit bumps or drive on a bumpy road. Any ideas what it is? Ball joint?

I'd take it to a suspension specialist to be sure, but that's my thought. I'm no mechanic, but I know they shouldn't last that long.

Oh really? Ok thanks. I will have them look at it. I was just hoping it was something small that I could fix at home

I have 125000 on mine and it didn't rattle just yet but I know it will soon bc this shop was trying to trick me into buying both front tire rod ends.... My grandpa is a mechanic and he was going to change them for me but noticed that the rubber boot was all tore up and I didn't need then replaced after all... Are they good on yours?

Is this the rubber boot your talking about?
EXACTLY MY friend,i took both of them off and noticed that one them was perfect and the other one was starting to go out so I went to all the auto parts store possible and found out that nobody makes it just for the mustang my only option was to buy a universal pair for $6 plus a $5 heavy duty grease. The reason for it was bc when I trolled twirled the tire rod ends it felt like sand bc of the rubber boots letting all the dirt flow into it. All u do is clean it with the coffee stirrer that comes with any wd-40 spray can and blue all the dirt out
