If it is riveted on, you drill out the rivet, and replace it with a stud and nut type ball joint

I recently replaced a ball joint on my 1997 civic. Since then my front end wobbles back and forth, mainly at low speeds, and ususally after turning left. Clearly something is loose and or wrong.....what do...


When you say I, do you mean you? Upper ball joint,
you had to replace the control arm. Lower ball joint,
you remove the steering knuckle and have a machine
shop replace the ball joint. I would back track and make
sure no bushings or bolts are missing and all is tight.
Of course there is always the possibility the ball joint
replaced is defective. If you personally didn't replace
the joint-take it back. Sounds dangerous.

Ball joint boot as split will i have to replace ball joint


Hello,

If the boot is split you will have to take apart the ball joint in order to fit a new boot. It is a good time to see if there is any play in the ball joint.
If all is ok fit the new boot after greasing the joint.

1998 ford escort pop noise in front end when turning and breaking


you will have to put the car up and move the wheels side to side.if there is play there is a ball joint or tie rod end or stabilizer bar link that is bad.
it could also be a cv joint that is gone,look for a cracked boot or grease on the driveshaft.

Ball joint keeps going


This is a tough problem to answer. There are a lot of variables that can cause premature ball joint wear. The most common concern is the road you drive on, the tires and rims you are using and the mileage you have gone.The part that you installed,did it have a grease-able zerk fitting to add to the joint? Is the alignment correct, are there any other parts failing? (like the boot that covers the joint?)
