What is a Ball Joint?

Ball joints are the critical component of the suspension that connect various links and allow them to move.A ball joint is usually a ball-in socket design, lubricated with grease and covered with a dust boot.Ball joints provide pivoting movement between the steering knuckles and control arms to provide a safe, smooth ride and allow you to precisely control your vehicle.


What do Ball Joints Consist of?

Ball joints consist of a metal housing and stud. The stud can swing and rotate within the housing. The socket is filled with grease to provide lubrication, keep debris and water out of the socket, and maintain noise free operation.


How To Tell If A Ball Joint Is Bad?

Think your ball joints have gone bad? Worn ball joints contribute to looseness in the front suspension and prevent your vehicle from maintaining wheel alignment. You may experience steering looseness, steering vibration, unusual noises and excessive tire wear.

Here are the common symptoms of worn ball joints.
