    Suspension ball joints are like your shoulder or hip joint. It depends on how badly they are worn. I have seen them brake and cause accidents. If a ball joint is badly worn it may break!!!!!! As your mechanic was there just a little wear or how critical he thought it was that you need to attend to this repair.
