Jeffrey

Jeff provided me with great service. He arrived on-time (actually he was early, which was even better). He listened to my complaint and quickly went about assessing the situation. After a thorough inspection/diagnosis he explained what the problem was and offered a solution. He made several suggestions for future work that I need to keep an eye on. His written/recorded report was comprehensive and professional. He took the time to answer all of my questions and made several helpful comments regarding my concerns. Overall, I was very pleased with Jeff's knowledge and professionalism. Whenever I need a mechanic in the future, I will most likely call on him. A Satisfied Customer, RJH (Bob)

All about Ball Joint Replacement (Front)

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.
