Ball joint...

A lower ball joint was really loose. Before moving the car, I always look under it; after 4 days at the same spot, only 2 or so drops of oil.

I have noticed some LHM sipping from the rack; this should be addressed at some point in the future.

Started the ball joint job.

The toughest was to unbend the metal keeping the ring from turning. I had to rebuild some thread also; easy laying on the floor...

The ball joint was so loose that i could feel the play just by hand.

I have removed .5mm of metal on the spacer ring. I don't hear it anymore. Just have to disconnect the joint to final torque the ring, place the boot, lube and torque the nut. The car will be ready for delivery.
