Ball Joint Replacement (Front) Service

What is the Ball Joint Front all about?

Ball joints are a part of your vehicle's suspension system that connect the steering knuckles to the control arms. A ball joint is essentially a flexible ball and socket that allows the suspension to move and, at the same time, the wheels to steer. Cars and trucks will have multiple ball joint assemblies depending on their type of suspension system.

Like any other suspension component, ball joints will eventually wear out and become loose. Excessive play in the joint can affect wheel alignment and tire wear. Loose joints can also cause suspension noise (typically a "clunking" sound when going over a bump). If a ball joint fails, the suspension can collapse, causing a loss of control of the vehicle.

Keep in mind:

Depending on the suspension design, ball joints can be found either in the front or the rear. The vehicle may need to be taken to a shop for wheel alignment after this service. Mobile mechanics do not have the machinery to align wheels.

How it's done:

  • Remove the wheels.
  • Remove the control arm(s).
  • Remove and replace ball joints.
  • Check the entire suspension system for any problems.

Our recommendation:

When applicable, make sure the ball joints are lubricated during a major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Ball Joint Front?

  • Clunking noise from front tires.
  • Steering wheel shakes.
  • Car moves to the right or left, especially going over the bumps.
  • Vehicle tires have abnormal wear.

How important is this service?

The ball joint connects the control arm to the steering knuckle. As the wheels – and therefore the steering knuckles – move, the ball joints help the suspension – and therefore the control arm – stay steady. And as the suspension moves, the ball joints help the wheels steer. When the ball joints fail, the suspension and wheels have a hard time working independent of each other. This puts unnecessary strain on each component, which can alter wheel alignment and severely damage the suspension.

Acura RDX - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Portland, Oregon
I am incredibly happy with Russell. I had scheduled a pre-purchase car inspection for the following day. About an hour before the scheduled time, Russell called me personally to let me know he had finished a job prior and was covered in oil and grease, out of courtesy he said he could come, but didn't want to get the car dirty etc. and proposed coming later that evening to another location which was about an hour away from where we had originally booked it. He showed up on time at our agreed upon rescheduled time, and was prompt to give me a call when he had finished the inspection. He told me the car needed spark plugs and was running rich- and went over the possible reasons as to why from minor to major and suggested I get a second look with a diagnostic and have Acura throw the scanners on it to see what they could tell. Overall he treated me with respect, patience, and gave extremely good detail. I ended up going with his recommendation of having it looked at a second time, and the auto shop the seller of the car took it to, was the worst experience I had ever had with a mechanic who contested the car was not running rich nor did it need spark plugs. After having to argue like that with Honest 1 auto (in Gresham), and noticing the stark differences in how I was treated with an auto shop vs, Russell (I mean- he treated me like his own kid!) - I will 100% use Russell again in the future. I ended up purchasing the car, and Russell's work helped me negotiate a lower price. Thank you again Russell- it was a true pleasure!
