Front end ball joints at 100K

So I've got some play on the front end ball joints that I've decided to replace before doing my 2" lift. Better safe than sorry.
I'm assuming that for a Commander with 100K this is probably typical wear.

Has anyone else here had to replace their front end ball joints?
What mileage were you at when you did this service?

Top and bottom right. I only have a slight play in the bottom lower left, so I'll do that too. Top left is tight.
