So every time someone questions tramlining and a loose feeling in the car, they are referred to RTABs, wishbone bushes, track rods etc. But no one has ever mentioned the rear hub upper balljoint (these things https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=e4...60%3B640%3B427)
I changed both sides and despite not being picked up even as an advisory at MOT time, they both had considerable play in them.
The car does feel tighter now and i dare say, tramlining seems to have improved quite a fair bit too. Need to get the alignment done still as i changed the bottom bushes too but it feels good so far.
It may also explain why my tyres didnt last a very long time either despite having wheel alignment done and not being able to feel any play by rocking the wheels by hand.
Anyone ever have these balljoints changed and feel a difference?
