Great first experience with YourMechanic. Jason is pleasant and knowledgeable, he worked through the rain to mount new brake rotors on my vehicle - in the rain, no less. I would request Jason to return for future services again.

From the moment the appointment was scheduled, I received phenomenal service! YourMechanic maintained consistent effective communication with me about my appointment and worked around all my issues, to include car being parked in parking garage, work schedule, not having consistent access to my cell phone due to security of building, etc. GREAT SERVICE! Eugenio arrived in a timely manner and utilized my requested means of communication (office phone). He met me in the middle (worked on my car in a street parking spot). He effectively diagnosed the issues and fixed the problems in a timely manner (total time to completion = 1 hour). I couldn't be happier with the way things went and I spent less than $100 on the amazing service. WILL DEFINITELY be using YourMechanic again in the future!

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.
