How Much Does Ball Joint Replacement Cost?

Ball joints, the necessary connectors between the steering linkage and axle assembly in your car, may degrade after years of use. This can be due to lack of lubrication and some dirt that accumulate in the vehicle’s joints.  Ball joints are an essential part of a vehicle’s suspension system.

There are usually four ball joints in a car’s front suspension, with an upper and lower one on each front wheel.
