After the repairs Grzegorz noted that some other parts of suspension may still work, but the new struts have improved handling and reduced noise.

My First time using "YourMechanic" and I was not sure what to expect. I was more than satisfied with the experience. I had a serious issue with my 2006 Mazda tribute, but didn't know how serious. The car is not safe to drive and I was looking at Nearly $100 Rnd trip to get it to a mechanic at a shop to be diagnosed. Then i was concerned about being a hostage to that shop. Dwight was incredible...knowledgeable (extremely), personable, professional...all the superlatives. The bottom line was that my car needs a new engine, which is not within the scope of the work "YourMechanic" does. No worries, Dwight made some recommendations and offered to look into some reputable shops that do this type of work. It wasn't good news by any means, but it was credible and not as bad as I had feared. Great job Dwight! It was a pleasure meeting you today.

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.
