Suspension problem
1996 Ford Thunderbird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles

My car is pulling to the right, a mechanic told me it may be the ball joint, the replacement is costly, i've been examing the car myself, and have noticed that the control arms on both sides are looking worn, is it possible this may be the cause of the pull, rather than the ball joint?

Do you
have the same problem?

Jack up that side of hte vehicle and shake the wheel sideways and up and down, post back if you find play. Make sure the brakes are not dragging.
