  • What happens when a ball joint goes bad?

    Posted on 18, June, 2019

    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.

  • What is a ball joint?

    Posted on 22, May, 2019

    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.
