Well do both cv shafts and tie rod ends. Inspect your other bushings while your there.

I degrease, clean, then spray the tierods with a silver paint before removing them. This allows you to install the new ones close enough to where I dont need to do a alignment after. My junk rides straight with no hands at 75.

Of course torque things proper and lay down a catch pan.

I do brake pads, rotors, hubs, and inspect the shafts every 30-60k. In most cases moving the strut makes this easier. At the very least you get a better look at your bushings which can save tire wear.

Now while you have the passenger shaft out the strut slid aside/removed, the tie rod dropped, the hub removed, and the control arms flapping around.
When is the last time your timing chain/waterpump was done?
One of those things where all that has to come out again to do it right. But if it was done 60k ago then it can wait another 30k and you can just do the tierods and cv shaft assemblies.
