Q: What type of Ball Joint System does a 2005 Nissan Altima Have? Or where can I find this information ? 2005 Nissan Altima

asked by on

I'm looking to get car parts so I can replace my front end ball joints, but when I'm looking online they're asking for upper and lower and I'm not sure which my car has.

My car has 148000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello - the front suspension on your Altima utilizes a lower control arm (with a pressed in ball joint), and a strut/spring assembly. The ball joint comes pressed into the aluminum lower control arm, and is generally not available separately. I recommend a lower control arm replacement performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, and make this suspension repair for you.
