    Ball Joint Repair & Replacement Hamilton

    What do ball joints do?

    Ball joints are small steel balls coated in a lubricated metal housing. The ball joints are important components in your vehicle’s suspension system and need to be in good condition to pass a WOF.

    The role of the ball joint(s) is to act as a pivot between the wheels and the vehicle’s suspension system. The ball joints allow the wheels to move according to how the steering wheel is turned. Most vehicles have upper and lower ball joints, usually located on the front wheels. However, there are many different ball joint configurations.

     

    When to replace ball joints?

    Ball joints should be periodically checked to ensure they are working correctly. This occurs at Warrant of Fitness (WoF) time. Most modern cars have sealed ball joints, with the grease intended to last the life of the joint. On older vehicles, the ball joints are not sealed and should be greased every time the oil and filter are changed.

    The first sign of a bad ball joint is often a sudden burst sound caused by the ball joint coming loose. A ball joint should be replaced when it begins to creak or produce knocking noises while you are driving. Another common symptom is the wearing of the inside of your tyre.

     

    How important is a ball joint replacement?

    If a ball joint breaks when you are driving, it is possible that you could lose control of the vehicle. Therefore, we suggest that you get your ball joints replaced as soon as you notice the issue.
