I need my ball joints replaced on my car I was wondering do I need to replace the control arms as well
My car has 134 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. When changing out the ball joints, you don’t need to change the control arms if you have a replacement ball joint. However, if you are wanting to replace the bushings and the ball joint, then you may get a better deal when buying a control arm with the bushings and ball joint already installed. I suggest checking the bushings on the control arms before making your decision. If you need further assistance with replacing the control arms, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
