What is a ball joint?

A ball joint is a spherical metal bearing that connects the control arm to the car's steering knuckle. The ball joint consists of the spherical bearing, a metal stud that's attached to the bearing, and an outer casing. The casing will keep the joint protected and free from particles that can hinder its operation. The stud is threaded at the end and screws into the receiving end located in the steering knuckle. The ball joint is crucial to turning and maintaining control of the vehicle as the suspension compresses and expands.

Are there different kinds of ball joints?

There are two different kinds of ball joints. There is a sealed ball joint which has the casing around it, and there is a ball joint without the protective casing. The sealed ball joint is lubricated for the life of the part and doesn't need extra lubrication or maintenance to replace the lubrication. The non-sealed ball joint will need lubrication and should be checked roughly once a year.

What can go wrong with a ball joint?

Believe it or not, the sealed ball joints typically have more problems then those that are not sealed. The seals seem to crack or break more often causing leaks which lets out the lubrication and leads to rust and wear of the bearing and connected stud. The other problems that can occur with a ball joint would involve the stripping of the threads on the stud or physical damage caused by a severe jolt to the suspension, wheel, or steering knuckle.

How will I know that I have a bad ball joint?

There are several signs to let you know of a bad ball joint. Initially, all indicators are sounds that originate from your steering or wheel assembly. You may notice a popping noise when turning the wheel, a screeching sound when stopping, cracking noise when going over bumps, or a more subtle snapping or clicking sound. If the seal is busted, you will notice leaked lubrication near your wheel. If a very serious problem occurs, the ball joint can become disconnected making it impossible to steer or control your vehicle.

Are there different kinds of ball joints?

There are different kinds of ball joints. The difference exists in the materials used to create the bearing, stud, and casing. Those that are heavy duty will be made of stronger composite. If you plan to race your vehicle on a track or use it off road, it may be worth looking at an aftermarket heavy duty ball joint for that extra support and piece of mind.
