What are the control arms on a car?


The control arms are a suspension component that connects each wheel with the frame or body structure of your car, which is designed to support and regulate the movement of the wheels, ensuring stability and control. They ensure proper wheel alignment, absorb road shocks, and enhance stability during braking and cornering.


The control arm's swiveling ball joint serves as the steering system's pivot point, allowing the vehicle to be turned in either direction while moving forward or backward. The hinge joint on the control arms' frame side keeps the wheels in contact with the ground, whether traveling over smooth pavement or treading over bumps and potholes on the road. Both sides of the control arm work together to grant the movement necessary for a vehicle to safely and adequately operate on roads.


How do ball joints work?


Ball joints, also known as ball and socket joints. The socket component is bolted or pressed into the control arm, while the ball component allows the wheel hub to move in sync with the control arm during suspension compression and rebound. In some vehicles, the ball joints come with grease fittings. Regular greasing of these fittings is essential to prolong the lifespan of the ball joints. It is recommended to grease the fittings every other oil change to ensure optimal performance and durability.
