What Do Wheel Bearings Do?

Wheel bearings minimize metal-to-metal contact by taking on the damage placed on the suspension and wheel. By bearing the pressure put on the suspension and wheel systems, the wheel and suspension will go relatively undamaged, saving you more costly repairs. Standard wheel bearings can last between 75,000 and 150,000 miles. Check your owner's manual and work with our service team to find the right interval for you.

What Do Ball Joints Do?

The ball joints connect the car wheels to the suspension system, much like how your hip joint functions. By connecting the control arm to the steering knuckles, ball joints ensure smooth movement in the suspension. However, ball joints collect dirt, debris, and impurities, which can cause excessive play and looseness.

Some of the red flags of ball joints that need replacing include:

  • Clunky or knocking noises
  • Shaky or loose-feeling steering
  • Drifting to one side
  • Premature tire wear
  • Creaking or squeaking when the suspension moves

Have one of our Ford-certified specialists inspect your ball joints to determine how much time they have left and consult your owner's manual for more information.
