c280 benz Ball Joints/rotors??

I have a 100k1998 benz. The rotors were replaced at 60 k, the ball joints have never been replaced. Should this be something that I should consider doing? if so, for these 2 items should I only use MB ones or would cheaper versions be okay to use?

well you don't do one cuz of the other.
have the ball joints checked properly.
you'll be ok with differant brands of rotors.
check prices as sometimes the genuine are close to aftermarket.

Check for the amount of play in the ball joints. If there is no play and the boot is intact with no grease leaking, then they should be good to go.
