Vague Steering is Unsafe!
Ball joints overtime can become loose and ultimately come apart. These symptoms below should not be ignored!
- Vague Steering
- Difficulty maintaining your lane in traffic
- Visibly torn boots
If you're driving an older car chances are your ball joints are worn out. Some wear is less noticeable than others but all symptoms of bad ball joints should be addressed. In some extreme cases of neglect or improper installation, the ball joint can actually come apart after hitting a pothole or under other harsh conditions. Even if your car feels fine, ball joint boots should be inspected visually for tears.
