Front lower ball joints

The little monster turned over 100k miles this week. She needs new ball joints. Is there a brand that is better than others. I'd rather just do this once! 2005 WRX

Knock on wood! So far, it's been a educational experience. Not too expensive either. If we can get all the kinks smoothed out, I think we'll have a nice little car.

a/m intercooler hoses slip off

My son recently bought a 2005 WRX. It has a front mounted intercooler. Two of the clamped hose joints keep coming loose while driving. Real pain in the butt. What can we do to solve this problem?
