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.

Audi A4 - Spark Plugs - Las Vegas, Nevada
My fuel pump, fuel filter, and spark plugs were changed out. He let me know I bought the wrong vacuum pump, probably only bc it was a different figment than the correct one. 1 day after the Mx, my engine started shaking and the car felt like it was being driven over lumps of coal with the emergency brake applied. When I called YM to talk to them about it, I was informed that I would have to pay for another inspection since I provided my own parts. Nevermind the fact that it may have had nothing to do with the parts, but possibly just with the maintenance itself. I took my car to Midas and was informed by that I had had the wrong spark plugs put in, and that caused a crack in 3 out of 4 of my ignition coils-a problem that did not exist prior to the maintenance done by Luis. That was my fault for buying my own parts (which saved me a $75% markup from YM’s parts) although most websites said that those plugs fit my car. If that was the case, though, a 13 year mechanic should have been able to let me know that that was the wrong part just like he did with the vacuum pump instead of placing them in my car. So I’m shelling out another $300 to have yet another set of spark plugs and ignition coils replaced. Thanks YM. I’m not as upset at Luis as I am YM, bc I feel if I could have talked to Luis about this instead of being stonewalled by the company, I would have had a better outcome and a better understanding of what went wrong.
