Thanks for reminding me! I was hoping I could replace it next year, but I won't take any chances and get it done ASAP.

I hear creaking like its like springs...But the funny thing is I don't really know yet until I check because my shocks are dead too. So the springs could be actual springs or the balljoints.

I just replaced my Control Arm on the driver side for now. I think that was the culprit because I checked it and it was really worn out.

I checked for prices @ Mitoi and it was 80 bucks for 1 piece. Honda was over 130 bucks for 1 piece.

I ended up finding a great place in Brampton that sold new control arms for $43.50 tax in...thats pretty nice! Thanks to eBay I just found a great place where I can get ball joints, control arms and more for cheap cheap.

if anyone here is curious how to check their balljoints's:

upper bj: lift car in the air and push down onto the top of the upper control arm, kinda like your givin it CPR. If u feel any play at all then its no good.

lower bj: lift car in the air and use a pry bar and put it in between the LCA and the knuckle, pry in between there with the bar and if u see any play at all then its no good.
