The replacement of the ball joints will affect the alignment's settings, so we recommend a four-wheel alignment when the ball joints are replaced.

A "clunk" or "pop" when going over bumps or turning can indicate a problem with a ball joint.

Excessive inner or outer tire wear can sometimes be attributed to problems with the ball joints.
