Ball Joints – How To Avoid Memory Steer

Follow all instructions to avoid issues caused by incorrect installation. This video is sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.

If your shop works on trucks like the Ford F 250 or Dodge Ram 2500, you know that these have a solid front axle. During their lifetime, chances are the ball joints will need to be replaced.

Trucks like these have ball joints because they're four wheel drive and the axle goes between where the kingpin used to be. When you're installing the two ball joints it's critical that they're installed on-axis. If they're installed off axis – in other words, one ball joint doesn't line up with the other – you could have issues with memory steer. When memory steer happens, the driver will notice that, as they're going around a corner and releasing the steering wheel, it may not return.
