Ball Joint Replacement (Front) Service & Cost

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.

Showed up early. Knew exactly what needed to be done, and did it within an hour. Very happy after with the speed and the service provided. After taking my car to a local Pep Boys and being told the job would be over $1000, and they had no idea how long it would take, I will never chose anyone but Rick.

Came on time, very friendly and professional and extremely knowledgeable. Took the time to explain things in detail. Was very fast and thorough with the job. After it was done, he made sure everything was properly installed and double checked everything for leaks. Even cleaned off spilled oil from my garage floor. Came through even in bad weather (it was raining and cold). Added air to my tires and check all of the pressure. Extremely convenient for people that has a busy schedule and can't waste time driving to a shop and waiting. Everything is performed from the comfort of your home. No waiting in line, everything is booked and schedule online, there's a quote so you get an idea of how much the repair cost before anything is started. You can add and subtract things to fit your budget. No cash is physically exchanged. Everything is linked to your credit/debit card and they send you invoices to your email and also notify you on your phone via text. It even alerted me when he was on his way and he called me when he arrived. Highly recommended mechanic! Will be using him again from now on for all of my future repairs.
