The Ford ball joint is important to your vehicle, helping in both the suspension and steering systems to help keep it stable and controlled as you travel. In the steering system of your vehicle, the Ford ball joint helps to keep the front-end tight and well aligned, keeping cornering accurate and controlled and preventing the vehicle from wandering as you drive. The Ford ball joint plays an important role in the vehicle suspension system as well, helping to give flexibility to the wheels to keep each one firmly on the ground over bumps and uneven surfaces, assisting in vehicle stability and traction. The flexibility allowed by the Ford ball joint and other suspension components helps to absorb a great deal of the vibration from the road and the impact of bumps and potholes, insulating the rest of the vehicle from the stress and damage they can cause as well as providing a smooth and comfortable ride for passengers. The Ford ball joint takes a lot of harsh treatment as it does its work, first to take the punishment of the bumps and potholes as it protects your vehicle from their impact. All the jarring and vibration will eventually take its toll, causing a gradual deterioration in the condition of the Ford ball joint that makes periodic replacement a necessary part of good vehicle maintenance, necessary for safety.
