I want to maintain both of my vehicles. I do most repair work that is possible. I have 1998 GMC jimmy and 1997 ford expedition. Just recently, I could not get both of my vehicles wheels balanced because the ball joints and tie rods needed replacing. So I had to take them to a experience mechanic. I paid over 1500 for both vehicles. A sales person at O'reily's, told me "I shouldn't mess with grease them when doing oil changes, because I could bust the boots and since they are new, the oil in them we last almost forever". I want to make sure I do not need to worry about ball joints and tie rods as my regular maintenance work. Is he right?
