The steering system in your Honda not only makes it possible to turn corners, but it is also vital in the overall safety of your vehicle. The final link between the steering system and the wheels is the Honda ball joint. When the steering wheel is turned, it moves the steering rack to the left or the right, and it pushes the tier rod in the appropriate direction. The tire rod is connected to the wheel with the Honda ball joint. This joint is a simple ball and socket, which allows the wheel receive the steering input, even while the suspension is moving. Both parts of the Honda ball joint are made of metal, so a large amount of lubrication is necessary to reduce the amount of friction in the system. On some vehicles, when the lubrication becomes low, the Honda ball joint will have a grease fitting that will allow you to add the proper amount of lubrication to the joint. This should be done a few times a year to prevent wear. On many vehicles, however, the Honda ball joint is sealed, and the only option when it runs out of grease and begins to wear, is to replace the joint.
