I have been told I need a lower left ball joint at one place to 4 ball joints needs replacing at another. I have no tire wear and these places found this on their own during a brake check and test drive. I do not notice the play they talk about and a past mechanic friend insisted they aren't that bad yet. However the place that said 4 ball joints is a family member[and his dad's business] and I think is giving me a brake on labour by doing 2 at a time but said no wheel alignment needed[I guess if you are good?]. So I am a little confused as I have no tire wear[that I can see]. The old tires[recently changed and were on since new], were worn right down but even across, as well, no cupping, vibration, noise, etc. Or pulling to the side, smooth driving. I have never had so much work needed and have it run so well. What do you think? Thank you for you time and expertise.
have the same problem?
