I have some noise coming from my steering wheel and I try to lubricate the U joint tonight and see if it works otherwise I have to start replacing the control arm since my CV boots are fine.

I did search about control arm but I could not find the specific parts that usually worn out/needs to be replaced, like upper front, lower rear, etc and this is confusing. Which ones are need to be replaced exactly? Or I have to but the whole kit that contains everything plus the tie rod ends which is gonna cost around $500 :cry: ? Also how much usually indi shop charge (estimate) for the labor only since I'm gonna buy the parts myself? TIA

it may only be the tie rods. take the wheel off to check the control arms and tie rods.

Most likely yes, the tie rod end, because I did lubricate the universal joint and still make some noise, even when the car stops, and noise comes from tie rod end driver side. Does anybody know how much it cost just for the labor to replace the tie rod end for both side?
