The robot thing is a security thing... No you do not have to change the ball joints if they are not bad. It would be a matter of preference since you are right there with it apart.

Your welcome, I am not a robot either, just so you know...ha,ha.

Are there axle seals that need replaced. They didn't come in the kit


Yes there are, and do not come with the kit, that would be a good idea to change since you are there. You would need a seal puller.

Read repair book says it should have ujoint axles not CV joint axle did they modify because it looks like CV joint now

Reed Stoeser

Do the ujoint axles have boots on tjem


No, u-joint axles do not have a boot. What ever you got going on, long as the new parts match. Everything else applies.
