Suspension Arm Ball Joint Joint
« on: June 02, 2018, 11:29:15 AM »
Can someone help please im a little confused my car failed its MOT, but im confused as to whether they are talking about the front suspension lower arm ball joint or lower arm ball joint. The full reason given for failure is " Suspension arm ball joint dust cover severely deteriorated. Also they said  "Anti roll bar joint likely to become detached nearside front", which is funny as i replaced it last year and it hasn't moved ie nut is still in the same place, this is after they told me it had either snapped or became dislodged what a load of bull tbh. But any advice as always be most appreciated cheers.

As above lower arm ball joint dust cover,you can get just the dusk cover but I would just replace the ball joint.

As for the drop link that’s a bit of a strange thing for them to say,all I can think is the ball joint on that is worn?
