Honorio
14 years of experience
Honorio was good and I have no problem with the work he did. I'd use him again as it was super efficient and convenient. My 4 star rating was for a little bit of confusion with the service needed. When booking the appointment, I needed brakes and it asked me if I need from or rear brakes. I have absolutely no idea. I am not a car person, that is why I am hiring a mechanic. I guessed, and apparently guessed wrong, so when Honorio came, he had the wrong parts and couldn't fix my brakes. It was super frustrating as I needed them done quite badly. There should have been an "I don't know" option or something because I don't ubderstand how someone who knows nothing about cars is supposed to know if they need front or rear brakes.

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.
