Its the lower control arm ones that seem to be the main issue, I'll take them apart, check for wear and then decide what to do, either re-grease and refit or replace with rubber.
First off fantastic link. Nice explanation. Which wing was it that you removed? Drivers side (UK) or passengers side? I cannot remember which side has the fuel bits, though I have worked on both sides. Age!

The pics are from the (UK) passenger side.
