Re: Symptoms of bad ball joints?
Not that I consider myself an expert of any kind, But I did have new Upper & Lower Ball Joints installed on my 03 F-250.
My truck had 135K on the clock when I had them changed out and I would be SHOCKED if your truck with only 24,000 miles actually needed new ones.
It may just need some adjustments made to other steering components.
But IF you find that it need them, I encurage you to replace them with MOOG brand parts.
Why, because the O.E.M. parts do NOT have any grease (Zirc) fittings on them.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img]
The MOOG's come with grease fittings installed and will allow them to be lubed and therefore extend the life of the joint.
