Your Ball Joints Keep You Rolling

ball joint on a vehicle

Whether you drive a Porsche, Audi, BMW, Subaru, Land Rover or another performance and luxury vehicle, your ball joints are an essential part of your car or SUV’s performance and safety. At The Brake Shop in Mesa, AZ, we want to give you some tips on what to watch out for to make sure your ball joints are in shape and ready to go.

Like any part of your vehicle, your ball joints will wear out and eventually fail. The key to ball joint maintenance is being aware that one is failing and fixing it before it fails completely. If one breaks on you, you’ll end up stranded with the wheel folded into the fender of your vehicle, unable to steer. You’re looking at least to major damage and repair, and at most, a highly unsafe situation.

To keep them in top shape, make sure your fittings are greased each time you have your oil changed or tires rotated. At The Brake Shop, we can help with that too. Our goal is to help you prevent trouble in your vehicle before it starts.

There are two symptoms of a failing ball joint that you should look out for. The first is a loud squeaking or groaning noise when your vehicle travels over bumps or dips, like when pulling into parking lots or going over speed bumps. The second is a popping or rattling sound from your car, that’ll be most audible while going over rough terrain or when you hit a pothole. If you hear either, bring it to us at The Brake Shop and get it looked at sooner rather than later.

No matter your maintenance or repair needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best performance service shop in Mesa, AZ, call or stop by The Brake Shop today.
