Ball joint Failure in the front end of a car
There are many signs of ball joint failure:
Signs of a failing ball joint start to fail include:
- clicking, popping or snapping sound when
the wheel is turned
- squeaking sound at the end of a stop,
when the gas pedal is used and/or also
when hitting bumps.
- 'thud' noises coming from front end
suspension when going over bumps.
- Dry ball joints have dramatically increased
friction and can cause the steering to stick.
<<<Ball Joint or Tie Rod failure can result in
this to your auto or truck.
If a ball joint or tie rod fails, the results can be
dangerous as the wheel's angle becomes
unconstrained, causing loss of control.
Because the tire will be at an unintended angle,
the vehicle will come to an abrupt halt,
damaging the tires. Also, during failure, debris
can damage other parts of the vehicle.
