Question about 2001 Ford Focus
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.
