why would the upper ball jouint break
I backed out of a parking spot and and put the truck in drive before I went 10 feet the right wheel poped off at the upper right ball joint. The ball joint seperated from the upper A arm leaving the top half of the ball joint in place. I was left setting on top of the tire and hub assembly.
Hi lopaka, There are several reason that your balljoint has been damaged and or break apart. Below are just a few of the possible reasons. 1. Your Tire and wheel offset. 2. Heavy off-road usage. 3. Excessive towing and/or hawling. 4. Running up onto curbs/parking stops. 5. Hitting curbs from the side. 6. Faulty materials. Hope this helps!
