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.

Jason was very hard working. He did what he believed to be on the best interest of his customer. He was very set on my car hitting the road in the best condition possible. He was very upfront about what he could not fix but referred places that I could go for those particular services. I was very satisfied with the service from Jason. I just may make him my personal mechanic 

Carlos is a excellent and goes up and beyond his work. My car literally could not more beacuse of the wheel studs were stripped and broken. I was out of a car for a month and was ready to say forget it. He assured me that my car wasn't in a worse shape then the shops made it out to be. All the extra things I need that the shops said I just had to have before touching my car. He came and fixed my car up like it was no big deal and saved me a ton on money. I guess he can relate that everyone works hard and dont crap out money for something so minor that the other places cost an arm and leg for. I will recommend his work to anyone I come across. I will be booking all my appointments with him for now on. Thanks. Carlos for saving my sanity and car 
