When was the last time you inspected your ball joints binding, or a a control arm bushing(s)? Or shock bushings? Or a tie rod binding or bad and the t/r ends?

ball joints were recently replaced so they should be good, i was concerned about my control arm bushings but they seem to be fine, the bushings at the end of my a arms seemed to be rotted and im replacing my shocks soon so im kinda down to a process of elimination just trying to get any input which is always helpful
