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.

This was my first time using YourMechanic so I wasn't sure what to expect. Noe showed up early like a true professional. He gave me a time estimate of an hour to hour and half - and ended up finishing in less than an hour! Also, the actual total was considerably less than the initial quote. He exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend Noe to anyone who wants above and beyond service.

Robert was wonderful to work with! I needed my timing and serpentine belts replaced on my 2007 Kia Optima v6. My appointment window was 12:30-1, Robert called me around 12:30 to let me know he would be closer to 1. He arrived and was very warm and kind, he asked me if there's anything else I wanted him to take a look at. I kept checking in on him every hour or so and he would update me on what he was doing (even though I'm basically car clueless). The whole process took around 4 hours, partly because he had to run to the store because he was sent the wrong part. Robert even helped me with some hanging plastic damage (cosmetic) that happened a few weeks prior due to running over a tire on the highway. The next day my car was driving super smoothly and I could tell she got the TLC she needed from Robert. Thanks again Robert!

Nicholas diagnosed the problem with our car quickly, fixed the wiring that was damaged, and saved us the cost of a new alternator. He explained to me very clearly what was wrong and how he would attempt to fix the problem. He was able to fix what was wrong. Like most people with limited mechanical knowledge, I take my car to a shop to have my cars worked on by a professional. This experience with Your Mechanic, and Nicholas, showed me that one does not need to go to a shop to have great service. Nicholas did an excellent job and I will be requesting him again should I need a mechanic in the future.

Mark gets a 4, because my working life everyone expected a 10. A 2 or three would be a expected or sub par performance. He arrived earlier than expected, was very pleasant and professional. My overall problem was outside of repairs the company deals with. A follow-up to another specialist still did not resolve the problem. Finding your mechanic was sheer luck, and in the pleasant banter with Mark, I would not hesitate to call them again. All you have to know is how best to describe the problem. From his assessment, a second specialist, when the car gets towed to a dealer, I have knowledge to make a decision on their perception of the problem. Issue fixed, no, but there is no problem calling again.
