GM Ball Joint wearing out?
Has your GM car or truck been experiencing some shimmying in the front end? Has your steering wheel had some extra play in it lately? What about your tires wearing unevenly? All of these issues are the result of lateral deflection, or in laments terms, the side to side movement of the ball joint. This is causing your ball joint to wear prematurely. Here at DST we understand that this is frustrating and would like to introduce to you the solution to these problems, Moog part number K5208.
OE Design Problem
These vehicles often exhibit high lateral loads in turns that are transferred to the upper ball joints, causing excessive lateral deflection.
