A Ball Joint is a component in a vehicle's suspension system. It functions as a pivot point between the steering knuckles and Control Arms, allowing the suspension to move up and down while also enabling the wheels to turn. In simple terms, a Ball Joint acts as a link between the wheels and the frame of a vehicle.
A Ball Joint consists of a ball-and-socket design, where the ball is connected to a stud that fits into a socket. The ball is made of hardened steel and is typically coated to prevent rust and corrosion. The socket is usually made of durable metal and is designed to withstand high-stress levels.
The Ball Joint is held in place by a casing, typically made of metal, which is then secured to the Control Arm using nuts and bolts. A dust boot is also commonly included to keep dirt, debris, and moisture out of the joint, helping to prolong its lifespan.
The primary function of a Ball Joint is to allow for proper suspension movement and steering. As the suspension moves up and down, the Ball Joint allows the wheels to follow the movement while also allowing the wheels to turn.
The Ball Joint plays a crucial role in maintaining the stability and handling of the vehicle, as well as providing a smooth and comfortable ride. If the Ball Joint fails, it can cause serious issues with the handling and stability of the vehicle, making it a critical component to monitor and maintain.
