How to Install a Dodge Durango Ball Joint


Installing a ball joint onto a Dodge Durango means installing the entire control arm on a front wheel. The upper and lower control arms each have a ball joint, and they are fixed onto the arms. These are the primary hinges for the front wheels and suspension. The exact installation process can vary depending on the year that your Durango was built and whether it has two- or four-wheel drive. And there may be other components, such as the brake caliper or shock absorber, that you need to install or adjust because they were removed/adjusted with the original arm.
