check the suspension ball joints and rubbers . Check the steering ball joints and the rack end bushes for wear. Any front end steering noise is a cause for alarm as it is indicating a part worn excessively and is ready to fail

hi.
it could be listed as a tie-rod end, or tie-bar end.
it may also be shown as a stabiliser bar.

you may find you have to buy the complete rod as some of the ends were not removable.
it may be worth asking the mot tester is he knows what they are called

Hello, my car has recently failed its MOT on the offside (drivers) ball joint and was wondering if you could please help me. I've heard bad things about the garage i am using and i am therefore doubtfull...


Ball joints can have wear without producing any noise. Even slight wear will be classed as an MOT failiure because ball joints are a critical component. The only way to check if the work has been done is to inspect the car afterwards. A new ball joint should stand out because it will be spotlessly clean. If you turn the steering fully to the right the ball joints may be visible or they may be obscured by the wheels. It is much easier to see them when the car is on a ramp. If you have not had the work done yet you could ask another garage or tyre fitter to check the ball joint for you. It is advisable to have your tracking checked after changing a ball joint. Some tyre companies will check the tracking for free and charge only if they have to adjust the tracking. Hope this helps.

How do i replace a offside front lower suspension arm ball joint


You need to get or rent a ball joint splitter, maybe $20? or so to buy.   Some parts stores (autozone does this, one reason i recommend them, but other stores may also) will rent you some tools for "free" when you buy parts there .. they take a big deposit in case  you bolt ... but give it all back for return of the tool in good condition.  
 It's easy ... if you know how to work on suspension .. if not, get a Haynes manual for your car from part store, amazon or haynes.com for around $20,  the blood and busted knuckles you save due to reading it will be worth the money ;~).
