The front, lower ball joint may fail unexpectedly resulting in loss of vehicle control. Failed ball joints will require replacement. Our technicians recommend a complete inspection of related suspension components if this situation occurs. This should be done in order to determine if there is any other damage as a result of the ball joint failure.

    i was stopped at a red light turning left and when it turned green i let off the brake to just coast (automatic transmission) becasue there was a dip, as soon as the front driver tire got over the bumb, not even doing 5mph, just fell off my car, the ball joint on the control arm failed.
