Ball joints are also known as hinge joints, or even plain bearings according to the concept of their action. They are used in order to connect car elements and machinery, which are mobile in relation to each other at the moment of slipping. The swivel ball joint is located at the bottom of the car. The hinge joints in the suspension arm are called by most drivers “ball bearings” for a good reason – in most two-lever suspension vehicles the loaded lever is leaned directly on the steering knuckle through the ball joint, pressing the ball pin into the ball joint housing.

There are two types of ball joints: hermetically sealed (hermetic) and semi-hermetic. They do not require lubrication at all, or need it much more seldom than the simple, non-hermetic rotating joints. The ball joint is a very important spare part for any vehicle`s front suspension. In case of failure, the wheel just falls off aside. Imagine the situation if it happens during driving at high speed. Accidents are inevitable. If you detected any malfunctions in the steering system, a clatter or a knock, obstructed rotation of the steering wheel or exceeded free running of the vehicle - this indicates the urgent need for examination of the steering system by an expert and the prompt replacement of parts.

Diagnostics

First, examine the protective cover. On detection of even small defects it must be replaced.

Then you need to check the part for the presence of backlash. It is better to seek assistance from a service center, where experts carry out diagnostics on a special stand.

If you carry out an inspection on your own, you will need an assistant. The front of the car should be lifted and set on a support. Then press the brake pedal as far as it goes. At the same time, one should shake the wheel, holding it by the upper and lower points. If there is a backlash, the joint will have to be replaced.

Repair of the ball joint

In some vehicles, the ball bearing and the arm are a one-piece construction. In this case, it is more profitable to produce the restoration, not a replacement. For the restoration special equipment is used, so the repair is carried out in a service shop.

Replacement of ball joints

To replace the ball joint in home, you will need a set of spanners, a ball joint puller, a jack, a tire iron and an assistant. You must perform the following steps:

  • 1. Loosen the wheel and raise the vehicle with the jack.
  • 2. Unscrew the ball joint stud nut, unscrew the screws, and then disconnect the item from the knuckle.
  • 3. With the help of a puller press out the stud.
  • 4. Move the arm aside (the assistant does it using the tire iron), dismantle the old part.
  • 5. Fasten a new part to the steering knuckle.
  • 6. Now you can gently release the lever, making sure that the stud is in the eyelet.
  • 7. Tighten the nut of the ball stud.
