2003 Honda CR-V Question: Ball Joint and Wheel Bearing Replacement

 

Question

Visitor, Middletown, NY, February 09, 2011, 07:12

I have been told I need my lower front ball joint replaced and the knuckle and wheel bearing. However the car does not make the noise that is decribed on this website for wheel bearing problems. Is it required to replace the wheel bearing when replacing the ball joint?

    not really. is there an issue you are having that may be related??
    if the wheel bearing has play, then it needs to be replaced.
    the lower ball joint is a common failure but is not part of the repair.
    get a second opinion if you are not sure.
