Ive replaced idler,tierods,centerlink.
Ive now bought Energy Suspension end links,sway bar bushings,front and rear control arm kits/bushings.
What else should I have done at the same time?
Ball joints? what size? part numer?

If I end up buying BMR rear LCA's will these bushings work?

By the way,after install of parts listed in firt line,it tighten up a little but still have a little wobble/play in steering wheel when hitting bumps and lots of wandering and a uneasy feel to the handleing.

I'd do the ball joints as well if you are going to be in there. Usually if I have to do a job like that I'll just go in and replace anything that can wear out just because I hate taking things apart more than I need to. Are you sure your shocks are still okay? I see you are running 20" rims which can also tend to wear suspension parts out a little faster too. There should be a procedure in the factory service manual for checking/adjusting the steering box. Just be careful as it is easy to mess it up. How is the rag joint on the steering shaft?

As for the size of your ball joints - they are 9/16" lowers - K6145T lowers and K5208 uppers.
