problem #2

Mar 162001

S-10 Pickup 4WD

  • miles
Drivers side upper ball joint broke (housing ), this allowed the wheel to tilt in towards the engine compartment. Thank goodness this happened at a low speed while I was backing out of my drive way. The ball joint did not fail due to a lack of lubrication. This could have been disastorous. There was minor damage to the aluminum wheel on the inside.
