VIDEO: Recommending Replacement Ball Joints

CTR maintenance-free ball joints are a safe, quiet and reliable replacement option.

No one thinks about their hip and shoulder joints until it becomes a problem. The joints in our body allow a free range of movement and give us the ability to throw a baseball or run in a marathon.https://sample.dragonforms.com/cm_cta_option_1?pk=inline2021a&r=&oly_anon_id=b5836b43-b8fa-4936-95c3-62f282076bf5

The ball joints in your car act the same and provide the movement your suspension needs to carry heavier loads and to travel over all kinds of surfaces such as potholes, uneven terrain and over rocks and bumps. They allow tire to stay in constant contact with the road surface, allowing wheels to move up or down, depending on the surface. The ball joints allow a wheel to stay in constant contact with these uneven surfaces while continuing to steer.

So when it’s time to replace the ball joints on a vehicle, you want to recommend a quality-manufactured part that will restore the movement that your customer’s front steering and suspension need to operate safely.

Wheel Bearing Shortcuts

When you’re installing a wheel speed sensor on a hub unit, never ever remove it from the original unit. Sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.

Hey, I got a great shortcut for you. If you're working on wheel hubs, if you have one where you're dealing with a harness for the wheel speed sensor that may be behind a fender liner, has all these horrible Christmas trees on it to get in and out from behind areas that you've never seen, well, you can just simply take the old out and then put it in the new and get rid of the new harness. Do not ever use the shortcut. It is a bad thing to do because you are destroying the calibrated air gap that was done at the factory, and this is very precise, done with computers. By removing the wheel speed sensor from one and putting it in another, you've just changed everything completely and you're gonna cause yourself a comeback. Do you wanna know why? Well, it's gonna cause an erratic wheel speed sensor code or issues with the air gap.
