Auto enthusiasts who revel in performance vehicles recognize that there's nothing more important than putting in the best aftermarket parts for your car.

When a Ford Explorer Control Arm snaps, it is often wise to have the opposing arm checked, for it also may need maintenance.

Research on Control Arm for Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer is a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. It has evolved through five generations with the latest being the 2011 model. Its independent front suspension makes use of control arms or A-arms. Control arms are components of the double wishbone suspension, which is an independent suspension system that comprises of the upper and lower A-arm. Each control arm has two mounting points to the chassis, and a joint at the knuckle and the shock absorber and coil spring are mounted on the control arms to control vertical movement. They control the motion of wheels to keep them in line with the cars body and basically connect the vehicle's suspension to the actual vehicle frame.

Do you have a problem with your Ford Explorer upper control arm or lower control arm?

Just like all other car parts, control arms wear out. They can bend or break when driving on rough terrain, large potholes or bumps. If your tires are not wearing out normally, you need to check if your control arm assemblies are functioning properly. Common symptoms that indicate that your control arm assembly needs to be replaced include; banging noises when taking bumps and a steering wheel that is vibrating. The Ford Explorer lower control arm bushing wears out on its own and should be checked regularly.

The Ford Explorer Control Arm Replacement

The cost of replacing a control arm may be expensive because the entire control arm assembly may need to be replaced. Though it largely depends on the level of wear and damage, bushings and ball joints are usually replaced when a control arm assembly needs replacement. The Ford Explorer control arm bushing replacement can be conducted separately, though when worn the entire control arm can be replaced for cost effectiveness.The Ford Explorer upper control arm replacement cost may range between $160 to$390, it is reasonable to replace both control arms at the same time though not necessary, this is because if one is worn out or damaged, you can expect the other to require a replacement soon. It is a requirement that wheel alignment is performed after control arms are replaced.

Control Arm, Ball Joint Connection

Just like the ball and socket joint connects the human leg bone to the hip bone, the automotive ball joint attaches the control arm to the steering knuckle. While the control arm allows up and down motion, it's the steering knuckle that turns the wheel when you turn the steering. Depending on your vehicle's suspension system, there is a possibility of either a lower or upper ball joint and the lower ball joint takes the greatest hits, therefore wearing out very fast. This is the reason why the 2004 Ford Explorer lower ball joint replacement is a common procedure for auto mechanics. To replace your Ford Explorer worn out control arms and associated parts you can always visit your best online auto parts and accessories retailer PartsGeek.comfor the best deals.
