I have a 96 ford ranger, 4.0, 4x4. I was told by a break shop that my
ball joints are shot. I got a quote over the phone from a shop I
trust and I was quoted $800 for all four. I was wondering, how do you
know if the ball joints are shot? The only problem with the vehicle
is a small vibration while breaking (I'm guessing break pads or rotor
problems). Would there be a noise, something I can see, or any other
performance problems I'd be having if they were truly bad?
