Jeff contacted us via text an hour before our appointment time to let us know he was available to do the work on our vehicle earlier then expected, which we accepted. He showed up at our door thirty minutes later. He explained the service we had requested and he asked if we had any other concerns or questions, and we had none. He got right to work and after a little over an hour he had finished. He explained any issues he saw that might come up in the future. Jeff also answered all our questions about other estimates we had, Jeff, was very punctual, professional, and communicated well. I would recommend Jeff and we look forward to using his greatly appreciated services in the future.

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.
