Hello there, thanks for writing in. With bad ball joints and brakes that lose pressure, this vehicle should not be driven until repairs are made. If you have to pump the brakes up several times before they build pressure the most common failures are a fluid leak, master cylinder, or a brake booster. A qualified technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your brake issues, and repair the ball joints.
