    Default Font end Maintenance questions on 96 Silverado

    I have a 96 C1500 with about 210,000. The front end feels a little loose and shakey. I will be changing out the brakes and rotors. What else should I replace while I'm in there? Tie rod ends? Shocks? Any bushings? Just trying to get some ideas. I think it's all original parts under there.

    thanks

    Ball joints, tie-rod ends and bushings would pretty much be shot by now, get poly-urethane bushings

    You think both upper and lower ball joints? Other than the tie rod boots and control arm bushing, what other bushings are there?
