If it's an origional joint that you're changing, and it's still riveted in, it can ****. If it's been changed once or twice it'll be bolted in, and then it's just a matter of removing the bolts. You'll need a ball joint separator for one thing, and a floor jack.

If the noise only happens when you are moving, and it changes with the speed of the truck, its something that is connected to the wheels.
Road speed does not affect suspension noises like ball joints and spindles.
So it would be something like the brakes, axle joints or bearings, or something in the differential where the axles come together.
If the truck is 4wd you have front hub bearings behind the brake rotors, and regular bearings if it is 2wd.

I've replaced upper ball joint both, cv axles both. And my expedition still clunks and jerks when I turn corners. Why?


We can't guess for you

The bottom ball joints usually go on those vehicles

Can't the shop that did the work tell you why?

Your not replacing worn parts obviously

Any experienced person to road test & inspect
under it, can resolve that problem

Your friend is a little vague but almost right. This is due to lack of lubrication in the lower ball joints. Common issue. There is no way to fix other than replacement. the parts I am recomending are a little more pricey but do wonders and "FIX" the issue. They are called "Moog problem solvers". In my opinion of doing front end work over the years, Moog has some of the best products for issues with front end repair. Often correcting manufacturer issues!! Have the front end components inspected for wear and then replace the lower ball joints definately. Let me know if you need anything else.

i suspect it's the bushings for the front stabilizer bar. Need silicone grease or replacing.This assumes 4x2, not 4x4. #3 is the bushing.
Could also be upper arm with ball joint. These are lubed for life, not greaseable. But you could spray WD40 to see if it stops temporarily. see # 1 in 2nd illustration.
