What are the ball joints in your vehicle suspension?

Ball Joint
Excessive play in the lower ball joint leads the tire to recover sloppily from a minor jolt, this can be indicated by clunking and/or creaking noises, and odd or extreme tire wear on the front tires.

Vehicles with a MacPherson-strut suspension systems utilize a lower ball joint and an upper strut bearing instead of an upper ball joint. If you have noticed your vehicle wandering or erratic steering or odd tire wear, it could be due to worn ball joints.

Ball joints along with other suspension components, should be inspected annually along with a complete wheel alignment. Bring your vehicle in to Rapid Auto to have it inspected by a qualified service professional.
