Types of suspension ball joints

By type of construction, on which the part is set:

  • Swivel. Compression element, so is usually installed in the upper part of suspension on the front-wheel cars.
  • Bearing. Tension element, installed in the lower part of the suspension.

By the construction:

  • Assembled. The joint is fastened by bolts to the lever. At fault the element can be replaced, disassembling the unit.
  • Sealed. Molded structure, in case of failure is replaced completely. It costs more than the assembled option.
The construction of the suspension ball joint

The most common design of the sealed part consists of a housing with a spherical hole, and a stud with a ball at one end and threaded on the other. On the stud there is an attached boot that does not allow penetration of dirt and foreign objects. In most cases the assembly is made of steel and the contact surfaces are covered with polymer material. Spherical shape hole is filled with grease to reduce wear and tear of parts.

Tips for operating suspension ball joint

It is necessary to monitor the integrity of the seals. The presence of fractures lead to the penetration of dirt, sand and water into the system and its rapid deterioration.

Damaged seals should be changed immediately.

It is recommended to drive carefully on the roads of poor quality. If possible, they should be avoided.

The average life of the ball joint is 15-120 thousand kilometers.
