I get all the lifetime warranty stuff that autozone and napa have so it just takes time to do it.
To me that wasn't worth it. I had 33's on the stock suspension (2" BL), and with the lifetime NAPA premium ball joints, they loosened up on me in about 2 months - and that was 95% road use. Plus I broke 2 front driveshafts, 1 rear axle, 1 front diff, and all the steering slop that I replaced with the lifetime stuff too only to have it loosen up. I absolutely love the simplicity and strengh of the solid axle now. I was daily driving it for the last year and a half and it was wonderful to me. The only bad thing is the mileage (which is why I'm driving a car now )
