I have read other threads that give "mileage guidance".....Just wondering how much movement justifies replacing the arms.

I'm getting excessive tire wear on the outside of the front passenger tire. I jacked up the truck to check the front end. I am getting approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch of "play" in the extreme end of the idler and pitman arm. The movement is in both axis as I push/pull about 20-30lbs of force on the tire.

Does that warrant replacing them. I am planning on getting the braces and new tires soon. I just didn't know if I need to replace the arms.

Thanks in advance.

Are the replacement arms on Merchant Automotive's website heavy duty? They are around $260 for the pair. They are a lot cheaper at other online part stores.
