  • Non-load-bearing ball joints or follower style, on the other hand, are designed to maintain precise dimensional tolerances in a steering or suspension system. Wear in a non-load-bearing ball joint will cause a noticeable change in the camber, caster or toe angle of a front suspension. Consequently, non-load-bearing joints are preloaded in order to compensate for wear. Unloaded control arm ball joints, for example, should be tested for preload when the suspension system is ­disassembled.

  • Remove the lower control arms from the lower portion of the wheel bearing housing. The lower control arm ball joints have tapered shafts, as a result of this design they are wedged tight in the wheel bearing housing. Special tools are recommended to separate the control arm ball joint shafts from the wheel bearing housing to prevent damaging the ball joint boots on the control arms. Note: If the control arm ball joint boots are damaged, we have a control arm ball joint boot repair kit.

The upper control arm and ball joint are located under the front of the vehicle and are an integral part of the steering and suspension system. If these are loose or broken, they should be replaced immediately, as the handling of the vehicle can be severely affected. The upper and lower control arms hold the spring in and are directly related to keeping the vehicle up off the tire. Depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, the vehicle has a shock or a strut. The shock or strut is also affected if the upper control arm is bad.
