Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Control Arm Assembly
1. Steering wandering
Excessively worn ball joints, bushings, or a combination of these can cause the vehicle's steering alignment to shift, which may cause the steering to pull to the left or right when traveling down the road. This will require constant driver correction to steer the vehicle straight.
2. Steering wheel vibration
Dry ball joints have dramatically increased friction and can cause the steering to stick or be more difficult. Excessively worn bushings or ball joints can cause wheel shimmy, which may cause vibrations that are felt in the steering wheel. Vibrations may increase during acceleration.
3. Clunking noises
When bushings or ball joints are worn down they become loose which causes them to rattle and knock during acceleration or when driving over rough terrain. The clunking sound will gradually get louder until the component wears or eventually breaks.
