Volkswagen Ball Joint Parts
Volkswagen is an automobile company and the largest German vehicle producer, as well as the third manufacturer in the world. The VW brand has had three of their vehicle lines in the top 10 best sellers of all time and is still at the top of the list. Volkswagen ranks third in funding research and development in the industry, too. They also continuously have a broad catalog with high quality products, and more specifically, with their ball joint parts and components. Your Volkswagen’s ball joints push up and down load-bearing stresses that condition the way your VW performs and takes corners. Worn out or dry ball joints can result in abnormal binding in the steering control, difficult handling and challenging drives. Without the proper functionality, front end components like ball joints will have a direct affect on safety and stability that, over time, will lead to expensive vehicle repairs. Worn ball joints showcase warning signs that you can notice as long as you know what to look for. Basically, ball joints have a ball and cup design that turns and flexes in various directions and are controlled by the suspension. Lower ball joints carry the front end weight and will receive the most strain. When ball joints become worn, they can curl the wheels off of their central line, letting them to lay imbalanced in the cups. This can wear out the wheels drastically, on both the interior and exterior. Inside wear occurs most frequently when the suspension sags. Too much ball joint wear can result in an evident pulling of your Volkswagen in either direction, even on a straight and smooth area.

Most Volkswagen ball joints have an indicator pin that sticks out through under the ball joint to show how much wear it has accumulated. By measuring the extent of the pin you can get an informative reading of how much material has worn away. When this pin has gotten to the surface of the ball joint or disappears, it needs to be replaced. Worn out ball joints can also produce a number of mechanical sounds. A squeak like sound, not unlike to a rusty hinge, can be heard with the actions of the front end suspension. Ball joints that have become dry can bind, giving off a metal like grinding noise during turns. Damaged ball joints can let out a clunk like noise when your VW runs over driveway dips or sped bumps, as well.
