What does that noise in your Dodge suspension mean?

While there are numerous types of front suspensions, all of them share one common component: the ball joint. Dodge ball joints are the essential components that connect your wheel hubs to the control arms. They provide universal pivoting movement between the wheel hubs and control arms to deliver a smooth ride and allow you to precisely control your Dodge Ram car or truck. If the ball joints fail, it can have disastrous results.

Usually an early sign of worn or loose ball joints will be a faint, intermittent clunking noise that seems to be coming from a corner of your vehicle. The sound may be more louder when going over a bump or dip or when cornering. While the noise may be faint at first, as time passes and the wear continues, the sound will become louder and happen more often.

Premature slider (or telescoping) ball joint failures are a common occurrence on many late model Dodge and RAM trucks and Jeep SUVs equipped with a 9.25" axle. The OE ball joints are not greaseable, which can make them wear out faster.

When upper slider ball joint needs to be replaced, the installation procedure puts significant stress on the upper ball joint housing, if the upper and lower ball joints may not align perfectly. The Original Equipment upper ball joint design warps to compensate for that misalignment, which can cause severe wear from impact loads that happen under normal driving conditions.

We can replace worn out ball joints on your Dodge or Ram truck with quality parts that will restore it to like-new performance an give you years of service!
