The ball joint is compared to that of the two connecting bones in a human knee. It consists of two important parts, the steel bearing stud and a socket which is enveloped in a steel casing. The steel bearing is normally pointed and directed to the tapered opening in the steering knuckle. The connection sounds too complex and critical because the ball joint really is a critical device which is responsible for the secured performance and operation in your Cadillac's steering and suspension system. Because both the steel bearing knuckle and the ball joint are indispensable, they are given protection through the metal casing that envelops them.
Generally, ball joint are classified into two: the one which is called "lubed for life" and the standard ball joints. Either of which is employed in your Cadillac. The first one which is termed as "lubed for life" is more convenient since they need not be lubricated from every now and then. They are packed with enough lubrication in contrast to the standard ball joints which is normally checked for lubrication at least once a year. As mentioned before, your Cadillac Seville ball joint is responsible for a safe operation of your suspension and steering system. It is needed in connecting the top of the steering knuckle to the A-arm thus, decreasing excessive movements while your Cadillac is turning or during hard cornering.
