Lower Ball Joints

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've been a member on here for a while but only sent one post before just to say hello. I thought now was a good time to post properly.

I've just changed both my (notoriously failing) lower ball joints because of an MOT failure and now my steering wheel isn't centred when i drive. I thought this was just due to slight variations in the ball bracket assemblies, causing slight wheel misalignment.

What are everyone's thoughts on this, a second opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Any fitting of new suspension components will most likely result in some mis-alignment, I would take her to the Dr to get the geo sorted, not unless you live on Skye that is :lol:

The corrections at the ball joints do re-locate the road wheels positions, any visual movement in the steering wheels position screams an alignment problem. Please get this checked or face the loss.... If you need help in this area you are welcome to call on wim for guidance.... To display the importance of the steering wheels position here is a link that may help!
