About Ball Joints

Ball joints are a vital part of a car’s suspension and steering systems. They connect the wheel hub to the vehicle’s suspension. The ball joints are able to move horizontally and vertically and to rotate, allowing the car to be steered and providing shock absorption for a comfortable ride.

The ball joint consists of a polished metal ball encased by a polished metal cage, with a rubber boot covering the joint to keep the grease in and any dirt and other impurities out. Ball joints are almost always used in the front suspension only, although, in some high performance cars, they are also used in the rear suspension.

Cars can have two or four ball joints on the front wheels. If the car has McPherson struts, it only has two ball joints, which are positioned at the bottom of the wheel hub. If it has shocks and springs, it has both upper and lower ball joints. Some ball joints are load bearing, carrying the car’s weight, whilst others are non-load bearing.

Ball joints do wear over time, especially load bearing joints. If the rubber casing fails and grease leaks out or dirt gets into the joint, wear is likely to be accelerated.

Signs of a failing ball joint are the presence of a banging sound when the car goes over a bump, sloppy or stiff steering, a vibrating steering wheel or tyre wear on the outer or inner edge of the tyre.

Chevrolet trivia

  • It turned out that the Chevrolet chassis was ideally suited to WWII because it proved incredibly easy to install extra armour and both a machine gun and flamethrower to the roof.
  • The first Chevrolet was the iconic series C Classic Six. It sold for the very low price of just $2,150. That's about £1700 in proper money.
  • There's a version of the Corvette that is very different from its counterparts. The Corvette Grand Sport is much lighter than traditional designs, but the car was built at a time when General Motors were stopping projects. Only five of the cars were made, and the hefty price tag of £6-8 million means that they are all in the hands of private collectors.
  • The founder of Chevrolet held the speed world record before he built the Chevrolet Motor Car Company.
  • The first Chevrolet was the iconic series C Classic Six. It sold for the very low price of just $2,150. That's about £1700 in proper money.
