Question Ball Joint Failure?

Hey Guys,
A while back I had loud squeeky noise from the L/H front end of my 93 230E (70,000 Miles), read up on your posts and did inject the heavy grease into the lower ball joints, walla the noise was gone, but I could tell the L/H lower joint has some play, my question is.... After seeing the news about Dodge's Durango Ball joint failures.. And being stuck in Nigeria, with road conditions being extremely poor, should I change the ball joints or trust the grease fix? REAL FACTORY Parts are extremely hard to come by, lots of bogus spare parts in this country. Do I change the complete lower arms, or can I press in new joints?

Thanks Again
