About Upper Ball Jointss
The Audiupper ball joint is an important component of a motor vehicle’s suspension system. it works in a similar fashion to the hip joint of a human being. Depending on the make and model of the vehicle, there are either two or four ball joints. If there are only two, these are located at the bottom of the wheel hub. The Audiupper ball joint is present in vehicles with a “shock and springs” suspension system.
The Audiupper ball joint is made from a metal ball that is contained in a metal capsule. The upper ball joint can move horizontally, vertically and can also rotate, acting as a shock absorber. The Audiupper ball joint is almost always fitted to the front suspension only, although in some higher model vehicles they are also fitted to the rear suspension.
Upper ball joints become worn over time, as with most motor car components, especially if their rubber casing cracks, allowing lubricant to leak out or dirt and/or water to get in.
Indicators that an Audiupper ball joint may have suffered damage and lost its effectiveness are the existence of a banging noise when the car travels over uneven roads, steering problems and excessive wear on the edges of the tyres.

- The RS3 is lighter than you might think. That's because the five-cylinder engine isn’t made from cast-iron but instead from aluminium. That means it only weighs around 26kg!
- In 1971, Audi reached the landmark that all car manufacturers hope to hit sooner rather than later: the production of their millionth car. By 1976, they reached 2 million!
