LOWER BALL JOINT BROKE WONDERING ABOUT TRANSMISSION ISSUES

2003 Kia Optima • 200,000 miles

The lower ball joint on passenger side broke going around a corner causing the axle to pull out from tranny about 6 inches. Wondering about transmission issues, since I don't know how it is linked up inside, can this be set back into place? Also how do I check to see if other ball joints need to be replaced.

I believe on your vehicle it will snap into place.
