As for your door locks, you can replace those easy enough, or better yet if you're cheap like many of us here, you can fix your door lock actuators yourself for nothing but time.

Both of these problems have many threads devoted to them because they are very common to the X, but the solutions are pretty straight forward.
I would also have the ball joints looked at. I just got mine back from the shop and it rides much nicer since they have been replaced. And all the guys will tell you to use Moogs.

You made a great choice buying your EX. The Avalanche will be a distant memory.
