Ball joints are important to the suspension and steering of your car. They attach the wheel hub, where the wheel and tire are mounted, to the rest of your suspension. They are designed to move horizontally for steering and vertically for shock absorption. If ball joints aren’t kept lubricated, the ball can rub against the metal casing and wear down. This will affect your car’s steering.
