How often should Citroen ball joints be replaced?

Over time, the ball joints can wear out, as most moving components of the suspension they are prone to deterioration. Sometimes the ball joints dry out if they have not been lubricated correctly, which leads to increased friction and, for example, heavier steering. In some cases the steering might even stick. Eventually, due to wear the ball joints can become loose leading to imprecise steering and handling, usually identified by a 'woolly' steering feel.

Further signs that there is an issue with a ball joint can also be identified when going over bumps, stopping the car or going around a corner. A thudding or clunking noise coming from the suspension will then point to problem with a ball joint. In turn, this can unbalance the car's wheel alignment, in turn leading to increased tyre wear. In more severe cases a ball joint can fail outright leading to a potentially dangerous situation where you, as a driver, can lose control over the vehicle.

Addressing issues timely and professionally is therefore key to ensure a safe driving experience. Should you experience suspension problems then it is advisable that you have it inspected and, if necessary, have the faulty ball joint replaced. Always service the ball joints as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
