clunking noise while going over bumps or the greese fitting on the ball joint is no longer visible or flush with the ball joint housing
Have the car checked at a wheel alignment shop.
When replacing parts of a car, it is important to know the general cost of the fixes. To replace the ball joints for a 2003 F150 pickup truck, it is going to cost a person $40-$60 to do it on their own.
Need to know what vehicle and what year for an answer
I don't know anything about cars, except I'm having my ball joints (I believe all 4) replaced on my 2000 Ford Explorer and they say it will cost around $760. I !AnswerO.K. I work at Canadian tire in Hanover, and I did a little research for you. If you plan on replacing the two front ball joints at once, it will take about 2.8 hrs and at 68/hr that's about $190.40 plus parts. If you just want to replace one at the time it'll be about 1.5 hrs (this is by the labor book) and at 68/hr that's about $102 plus parts, so you are better doing both at once. Now the ball joints themselves are about $80 a piece depending where you go. Hopefully this gives you a general idea. Good luck!
never use used frt. end parts. its one thing for a used starter to fail and your car wont start but to be driving 60 mph and have a ball joint come apart is another If you know what to look for and not install worn out parts you will be fine, after all, every vehicle on the road has used ball joints. yes you are right. but the only way to check the wear properly is to install. what is the cost of new ball joints compared to used then the time it takes to install... again, put new frt. end parts on.. a ball joint costs 30.00. a used one is what? 20.00? If you are replacing damaged suspension parts because of an accident, you can purchase complete good used a-frames and spindles with ball joints from a respected used auto parts dealer, if you are short on cash. yes, in an accident where you have to buy the control arm, ball joint, spindal, rotor,caliper ect. as an assembly then yes. but the question was only replacing ball joints and again just replacing ball joints is not worth buying used stuff. spend $10.00 more and do it right.
When owning a car it is important to know how much replacement parts will cost. A 1992 Oldsmobile Royale brake and ball joints will cost between $15 and $60+.

If you have a factory steering knuckle, ford designed them for the ball joints to not be removable. If you are thinking that your ball joints are bad for some reason, you will need to get after market steering knuckles, and ball joints for replacement. Costly, I know but worth it. I suggest MOOG, I've always have had good experience with them.
For step-by-step instructions on removing/replacing ball joints, refer to a Repair Manual (Haynes or Chilton) for your vehicle. Manuals are available for sale about $11-$14 at any auto parts store. Or you can look in your local public library to see if there is one available for checkout.
If the joint between your arm and shoulder was not a ball and socket joint, you could not be able to move your arm. Ball and socket joints allow you to move in most directions. Because of this, you can move your arm up, down, side to side, front and back, and around in a circle. The ball and socket joint is one of the four major kinds of movable joints. (The four major joints are ball and socket joints, gliding joints, hinge joints, and pivotal joints in case you didn't know.)
There are a number of things that I know of that can cause this one. First off did you have an alignment done after replacing the tires? I would also suggest checking out your front end ie ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings and so on. Good luck
as far as i know, almost every car isMazda Protege Ball JointsI finally found the answer to my own question so if anyone else needs to know, for this specific year of the Mazda protege, ball joints ARE interchangeable.
we need to know how to remove and installation on ball-joints for a ford f250 3/4 ton 2 wheel drive
Shoulder, hip and in the foot. There may be more, I don't know.
Put the car on a rack and have the ball joints inspected by a professional if you suspect they are bad. Your car will dart from side to side and handle poorly if they are bad. This is a very dangerous situation so have this looked at ASAP.
Check them for any play. If you detect any play whatsoever they arebad and need replacing.
This question makes no sense (need to know what vehicle) first of all ball joints do not have races neither inner or outer secondly there is generally no upper balljoints at all
i know one is called a ball joint... not sure what the other one is called

Fixed joints allow little to know movement. An example is the suture joints between the bones of the skull.Hinge joints allow movement in one plane. An example is the knee joint. Ball-and-socket joints allow free motion in any plane in any combination. An example is the hip joint.
The truck will "wander" going down the road with no movement to the steering wheel. Jack the wheels off the ground and try to move them as of they we turning a corner. If you get movement in one wheel and not the other, ball joints are shot.
This is a general procedure checklist for removing most balljoints on 4x4's. - Remove wheel - remove brakes/caliper/rotor - remove wheel bearing/hub assy/4x4 assy (some assy's don't need removing to replace ball joints, if able to get to joint) - need press to remove joints or a hammer, chisel and lot's of elbow grease. Usually torches make it easier. Or remove the spindle and take to a bench press to remove the ball joints. Most places I know do this. - installation is the reverse Ball joints on 4x4's are typically a job that cost's lot's and for good reason. The joints can be a real treat getting out. Good luck.
If it is leaking it needs replacing. If you have no heat and the inlet heater hose is hot and the outlet is cool, it is stopped up and may need replacing, if it cannot be flushed out.
If there is a bump either in your wrist joints or ankle joints.
The upper ball joints come with a new control arm , as far as I know you can't just change the balljoint ( if that's what you are asking ? )
