Ok thanks, now that quarter inch play is at the ball joint, right? Roughly then how much play does that relate to at the wheel and steering wheel, just wondering. I mentioned this 1/4" play, to my family member mechanic and I guess he went to the books and found that 1/4" play at the ball joint, was right as now he said I'm OK for a bit and have him check it again in a few months. So, if 1/4" is normal play at the ball joint, what amount of play is too much.[What is the limit of play that needs replacement] So the first guy I brought it to was right, in January, this year. The second place said I need just 1 ball joint[drivers]. My family member mechanic said all four ball joints are bad until I mentioned the 1/4" play and it's OK now. He said 4 ball joints to change because he said changing only one puts too much stress on the other one that's old. Sound right to you? Thank you so much for your time, again you are saving me $$.
