Ball joints? @ 75K miles? That's bad. How have you used the truck?kmantz said:Dealer is saying I need to have my front ball joints replaced. I have 75K miles on an 07 RRS. Has anyone had this issue? Dealer wants $850 which includes an alignment. Thanks for your feedback!
True...I would describe it as a clunk when going over bumpy roads or a driveway lip. Noticeable "thunk" in my case....but once he disconnected the a-arms, you could literally move the ball joint shaft with 1 finger...whereas on the new ones, it takes a lot of effort to move them.Frisco_TX_RRS said:PJPR01 - If its a Ball joint, wouldn't it be more of a hollow rattle type noise from the front end going over bumps?
You are correct Frisco...the standard procedure now is to replace the entire control arm...and not press out the ball joint, same goes for the lower suspension arms...rather than pressing out those bushings, they replace the entire structure.Frisco_TX_RRS said:I believe in new cars, requires the control arm needs to be replaced since the ball joint is pressed together. I guess this is not the case in the RRS.
