I forgot to mention. Keep track of the nuts for the ball joint on the upper control arm. They are extra-fine thread (12mmx1.0mm, IIRC). They are like hen's teeth to find. I had to get replacements at the dealership. (A "mechanic" had forced 1.25mm threads onto them.)

I don't think I've ever bought a balljoint, or control arm with a new balljoint in my entire mechanic career that didn't have a new nut with it. I don't buy bottom of the barrel parts, but still, it's usually included.
