Part Details

  • Quantity:   4 Piece Set

These replacement ball joints are just what you need to ensure the safety and integrity of your vehicle's suspension and steering.

Specifications:

  • Comes as a SET of 4
    • (2) - FRONT UPPER Ball Joints - LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side)
    • (2) - FRONT LOWER Ball Joints - LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side)
  • Direct replacements
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Fits 2WD (Two Wheel Drive) Models only
  • Correct for models with Front Coil Spring Suspension only
    • Do NOT fit models with Torsion Bar Suspension

Worn ball joints can cause excessive front tire wear, popping or creaking in the front end, extra play in the steering system, and pose a serious safety concern. Replace loose or worn ball joints with our quality replacements.

One way to diagnose a loose, or warn ball joint, is to jack the car up, so the wheel is off of the ground, then have someone try to move the wheel in and out. While they are moving the wheel check the ball joint for play, if it is moving you probably need to replace it.

Our steering and suspension components are pre-greased and sealed for long life and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greasable versions.

Item Condition: New
