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.

Chevrolet Tracker - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Sacramento, California
I recently purchased a 2004 Chevy Tracker. Before purchasing, I wanted to have someone thoroughly inspect the vehicle to make sure it wasn't a lemon, and to notify me of what I would need to take care of in the near future, so I could use that for negotiating the price. I contacted YourMechanic at the last second and they responded immediately, able to accommodate my appointment. I was more than satisfied with the service I received from Kevin, the mechanic they sent to do my inspection. He was very thorough, went above and beyond, and made sure to inform me of even the most minor things. Once the inspection was complete, we reviewed the positives and negatives and I decided to purchase the vehicle. I was even able to talk the dealer down $500 from the asking price to cover some of the things that needed attention immediately. The fact that Kevin even had knowledge of the dealers in the area aided my decision. It made me more comfortable purchasing from the dealer himself, even though I had already had a good feeling about the guy and had read previous positive reviews about him and his dealership. The reports (online and printable) I received were amazingly detailed, listed reminders of what I needed to be aware of, and even rated the vehicles condition to give reference. And they were available immediately. YourMechanic is also VERY affordable. I was getting inspection bids of $150 and up, but only paid $98 for this service. Thank you YourMechanic and Kevin. You all certainly exceeded expectations. I will most definitely use your service in the future and recommend you to others.

Martin was on time and very knowledgeable about the problem right away. Looked over the vehicle to see if any other things needed attention and suggested steps to take. Would call him again and recommend you do the same. Thanks Martin..
