Your service mechanic called you and said that the suspension was inspected and you need a “ball joint” The first question after how much does that cost is inevitably “what is a ball joint” anyway? The ball joint is an integral component in your suspension system. The joint is spherical and can allow movement in multiple directions at the same time. Specifically it allows the wheels of your car to be turned and moved up or down at the same time. All of this movement eventually wears the joint and leads to replacement. After this repair the suspension will need an alignment.
