I had 2 of the tires on the car replaced because of one cut on one tire. Tire shop did not tell me anything but on the receipt, under recommendations section, after stating that my ABS was inoperable, it says bad front lower ball joint.
I had the front struts replaced a few months ago, and before that I had the car diagnosed for ABS problem and in none of these occasions I have been told about ball joints. Can this be a real issue or just a way to make money even though there is nothing wrong to be fixed?
I called the tire shop and they told em that it is not that bad but I should have it checked at the next tire rotation.
What do you think? What should I do? I do not hear any unusual noises, nothing.
I have never heard of any Geo Prizm or Toyota Corolla having ball joint problems. I think they make them to last forever. Am I wrong?
have the same problem?
