We bought an oil change through a daily deal site. I bought it as a way for my wife to get her oil changed without having to go to a shop as we have 2 kids and I work long hours. I ended up being home the day Ben came so I was there for the appointment. Ben called about 30 mins before our appt to say he was on his way, showed up on time within a few mins and was done in about 35-45 mins. It was a completely hassle free experience and Ben was extremely friendly throughout the process. We really couldn't be happier.

All about Ball Joint Replacement (Front)

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.
