I bought a used Subaru and after owing it less than a month it just wouldn't start. After some bad luck with a previous mechanic I was worried I had bought a lemon. Then I called Your Mechanic and made my appointment with Russell. Russell is very knowledgeable, and knew all the little quarks about Subarus to check. He explained the steps as he went through them, told me exactly what he was looking for. Russell found the problem, a bad battery wire, and replaced it. It was such a relief when my engine turned over. Russell noticed that the engine sounded a little funny and he took the time to tighten some bolts, now my engine sounds better than ever. He also checked the oil and pointed out that it had been over filled. I will definitely be booking Russell again. His attention to detail and professionalism is so far above any other mechanic I've met.

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.
