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.

Mercury Grand Marquis V8-4.6L - Ball Joint Front Replacement (Upper Left, Upper Right, Lower Left, Lower Right) - Fort Washington, Maryland
He was not only on time but early which was good. I had the parts but one item was wrong. He continued with the job while I went to get the correct part. He was very professional and a great mechanic. At the conclusion of the job, I found out in conversation that I knew his father. I used to take my car to his father's shop and I remember him being the little boy helping out at the shop. SMALL WORLD!!

Mercury Grand Marquis V8-4.6L - Ball Joint Front Replacement (Lower Left) - Hampton, Virginia
Mr. Melvin was the consummate professional. He contacted me via phone prior to arriving and was very prompt. He explained the process and what he was there to do and how he would replace the lower ball joint. He also discovered that the sway bar link was bad and provided me an estimate for repair which I took advantage. Once finished, he clean up the are, gave me the parts that he replaced, and did an inspection and also some recommendations. The service provided by him and his company was exceptional. I will utilized the company in the future and hope they send Melvin back if I need him in the future. He Greatttt!
