Indicators You May Need to Set Up a Ball Joint Service

Although not many vehicle owners think of scheduling a ball joint service; there are indicators  that we want to help our reading audience understand in order to help manage the safety of everyone on the road.

Below are some of these indicators, which involves worn out ball joints, and the various issues that can affect your vehicle related to that.

Uneven Tire Wear  

Uneven tire wear can be an indicator of suspension concerns, which can include a loose ball joint within the front suspension. This is something our technicians can problem solve for you, and address swiftly.

Loud Vibrations

Ball joints, when worn out, can also cause your vehicle to rattle and vibrate. This can also be due to a wheel balance issue – among other things. But if it does so happen to be a ball joint concern, it is an affordable fix worth addressing.

Loose Steering Wheel

If your ball joints are worn out, your steering can feel increasingly loose. As above, other concerns can cause this also, but ball joints are a great starting point in the assessment process.

Seeking Preventative Maintenance? We Can Help With That Too!

The most common scheduled maintenance item is an engine oil change. One of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and oil filter regularly. Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. And engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.
