We own a 2000 Dodge Durango. We experienced vibration in the front and strange noises. Mechanic checked front end of vehicle. Said that front right upper ball joint was defective to the point where it was unsafe to operate. He showed us the abnormal "play" in the front and said the wheel could easily separate from the chassis. He replaced this ball joint, but warned that the other three (consisting of lower and upper ball joints on left side, and lower ball joint on right side) are also bad and will need replacing in the very near future. Also said the universal joints in the rear will need to be replaced in the near future. This is all after we spent more than $200 to replace rear wheel axle bearings.
