Rod

I have an older muscle car that had a bad alternator and a fried battery, and rather go throught the hassle of calling a tow company,that always complains that my car is too low to put on the flatbed,I decided to check the internet for mobile service,and after finding Your Mechanic, was happy to see that Mr Rod was available in my area. After reading all his reviews,I was leary that someone could be that good! Rod arrived earlier than the scheduled time, had all my needed work done in the most professional and timely matter possible.Rod even went with me to the auto parts store to make sure that I had a proper battery exchange. I now understand all the rave reviews that Rod had received before. I am now very proud to be a member of the Rod Fan Club!

All about Ball Joint Replacement

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.
