What happens when a ball joint goes bad?

When your ball joint goes bad it can cause extreme tire wear and in the most dangerous of conditions it can break and cause you to lose control of your vehicle and cause an accident. If you've been told that your ball joint has excess movement and needs to be changed, then it probably does. You'll also need an alignment to make sure all of your steering and suspension components are correct.  Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures,  Heather

What is a ball joint?

A ball joint is a pivot point in the suspension that connects the wheel to the car and allows the tire to move up and down and left and right. When you have excess movement or to much movement it will cause premature tire wear and bad driveability. If you have a ball joint that has excess movement then it needs to be replaced as it is a safety concern.  Give us a call at 541-791-2886 and let us take care of you. Happy Adventures, Heather
