Thumping sound on front end (both sides) on taking off and stopping. It feels like some sort of joint problem.


Try checking your upper and lower balljoints. Put your car securely up in the air, and grip the wheel at 12 and 6. While gripping the wheel, push hard in and out. If you feel any looseness, one of your balljoints could be worn out. I hope this helps, i am not the best at explaining this, if you have more questions email me at matt1992@hotmail.ca.

I have a 2001 dakota do I have to change the lower control arm to change the ball joint??


No you don't have to change the lower control arm to install a new balljoint.These balljoints come riveted in at the factory, you must grind the rivets then drive them through with a drift punch then they pull out....Then you can install new balljoints.I hope I could help...

How do i replace the upper and lower ball joints on my 2000 dodge durango


Dear Balljoint Replacer.....
This is a very labor intensive repair.The specialty tools that you need will be an air (or electric) die grinder, and an air hammer.If you already have these then GREAT!!! If not then be prepared to invest in a good $500 purchase for these tools.Once you get the vehicle up in the air and the wheels off then place jackstands underneath the frame and the lower control arms on both sides.Keep in mind to keep the jack stands underneath the lower control arms at all times because your suspension will be under load.Remove the brake calipers from both sides and swing them around and out of the way.....no need to break open the brake system....just swing the caliper and whole hose assy out of the way. Once tis is done its time to loosen and remove both upper and lower balljoint nuts...after that is performed then it's time to shock the spindle with a hammer to release the balljoints from the spindle.Your balljoints will then be ready to be removed.Now you have to take your grinder and score your rivets that hold your balljoints in on both the upper and lower so the top of the rivets are ground down to the control arm.Next take a punch and hammer the rivets in a downward movement to release the rivets and you can remove each balljoint like that.
The new balljoints install with nuts and bolts.Install is reverse of disassembly If you have any questions get back to me...HOPE I COULD HELP!!

Left Side is out of allginment


that easy have a allginment performed on it but first check for play in your upper and lower balljoints and tie rod ends if they hay play in them then a allginment is a waste of money. first get the front end off the ground then take a big pair of channel locks and start check those balljoints and tierodends its easy just put side of the plairs on the nut side then the other side of the plairs beside the balljoint then squez if the balljoint moves up and down then you know you have a bad balljoint and you can follow the same instructions for the tierod ends then after you replace the balljoints or tierod ends get a allginment performed

Truck wanders! new trailing arm bushings,allignment. balljoints are tight.


Even if the ball joints are tight and no or little play if they are still the factory seeled ones the are probabley dry and that causes them to wander or another thing that would help is add a steering stabilizer shock on the front end or if it has one replace it but balljoints are the likely cause.
