What is lubricating the ball joints all about?

Good suspension allows the wheels to move over bumps and potholes smoothly while making the car experience a very small amount of the jolt. In order for the wheels to move freely of the vehicle’s body, joints connect parts together while allowing them to move around. On parts that need to move in multiple directions at the same time, ball joints are the only solution.

Keep in mind:

  • To access the ball joint, wheels and brake components will usually have to be removed.
  • When lubricating the ball joint, the steering knuckle and other suspension components can be inspected for excess wear.
  • If a ball joint is covered in a rubber boot, the mechanic will make sure that the boot is still protecting the joint from dirt and debris.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle is raised and supported on jack stands
  • The ball joints on the suspension system is located
  • The Zerk grease fittings on the ball joints are located
  • New grease is pumped into the grease fittings with a grease gun
  • The vehicle is lowered off of the jack stands

Our recommendation:

The ball joints should be lubricated when the manufacturer suggests. This information can usually be found in a vehicle’s manual. The lubricant may wear away prematurely if the joint is not properly protected. Servicing the ball joints usually requires the removal of the wheels and brakes. This allows access to other components that usually aren’t as easily serviceable. Other joints aside from the ball joint may need lubrication. Parts may be showing excess wear. The steering knuckle and control arm should be inspected as well. There are many kinds of suspension and steering components that a vehicle could have, so consult the vehicle’s manual for any model-specific repairs or services that may need to be done.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need to lubricate the ball joints?

  • Loud squeaking or groaning when the suspension moves or when steering
  • Steering or suspension seems to operate less smoothly

How important is this service?

This service is fairly important and affects crucial components in the vehicle. Proper lubrication of components is a staple of preventative maintenance. Ball joints have to be completely replaced when they become too worn, and wear happens much faster without proper lubrication.

Jeep Grand Cherokee V8-5.7L - Lubricate Ball Joints - Fort Worth, Texas
Robert did another great job with a new vehicle that I added to my garage. He performed a full 50-point inspection of the vehicle and checked all of the potential wear-and-tear areas under and around the vehicle, including tires, brakes, joints, and seals. Robert has a lot of experience with all types of cars and will always help you learn more about your vehicle and how to keep it well-maintained.

Jeep Cherokee L6-4.0L - Other Inspections - Humble, Texas
Maxwell was an excellent mechanic. I called him for my fuel pump but that turned out not to be the problem. He told me it was the spark plugs and showed me how I could do it myself and the exact parts I needed to buy. I will definitely be giving him a call the next time something isn't working right. Higly recommended. Thanks again Maxwell!

Jeep Compass L4-2.4L - Oil Pressure Sensor - Circle Pines, Minnesota
Travis showed up on time. We discussed the services I thought needed. He assessed the services and determined that I needed the following for my 2007 Jeep Compass: Front rotors and brake pad Rear rotors (additional service added) on site Oil sending unit Other services I had requested were removed Recommendations for future services He worked quickly and efficiently. I've put over 500 miles on my Jeep and have no reoccurring issues related to the services. I now have a mechanic that knows my vehicle, it's history, and future services. I would highly recommend Travis to work on your car.
