ball joint

  1. The 7th Generation
    2007 Accord 4dr V6 AT, 145k miles. Just did a lower control arm replacement and noticed when I used the ball joint separator to get it off, there was a little grease that came out. Not a lot, just a bit and the boot is still in tact, no rips or anything. My gut feeling is the grease is the...

    Hi. I have a 2010 Accord EX with 160k miles. I have some creaking noises when turning at low speeds.

  6. The 6th Generation
    I have a 2000 V6, and I think there is a problem with one of my lower ball joints. The lower control arm near the joint is stained, so I think the grease is slowly leaking out. I deduce that I need to replace the boot on this ball joint. Is this a correct assumption? I'm hoping the grease...
