Ball Joints for Honda Accord

Since Honda began manufacturing the Accord in 1976, it has evolved from a compact vehicle to eventually a full-size four-door sedan. Many of these different models use different sized joints for the control arms. If you want to perform ball joint replacement work on the upper or lower ball joints on your Honda Accord, take a look at the available options for your car.

What are the specifications of the Honda Accords ball joints?

The exact dimensions of your cars ball joints will vary based on your model year and the size of the car. The compact cars from the first few generations will have the smallest sets to replace as a result of smaller systems. This set of hardware features dimensions of 3 x 2.6 x 1 inches and a weight of roughly 7 ounces. If you have a mid-size version, the weight will be approximately 12 ounces, with dimensions a little larger than the subcompact. Your full-size Accords hardware will weigh approximately 1.6 pounds each, with dimensions of roughly 5 x 5 x 3 inches.

What materials are in the Honda Accords control arms?

The materials included in the Hondas ball joints include rubber and steel alloys. In addition to spreading grease lubrication while your vehicle is in motion, the synthetic rubber is designed to keep vibrations to a minimum. The steel alloy protects the studs, casing, knuckles, and boots from debris and high levels of heat caused by friction.

How long is the ball joint replacement designed to last?

Ball joints for the Honda compact, mid-size, and full-size cars are designed to last for at least 60,000 miles with proper grease and maintenance. They can last up to 100,000 miles if your suspension is treated carefully and not exposed to significant bumps or misalignment. If your car has a sealed steering suspension system that does not require regular lubrication, they can last up to approximately 80,000 miles.

Do you have to use OEM ball joints?

You can find options for original equipment manufacturer parts that were made in the same factory as the original vehicle. This ensures you are receiving items made from the same materials and using the same specifications as the first set of ball joints. You can also find direct-fit replacements from other motor vehicle manufacturers as well as aftermarket performance parts from third parties such as Moog and ACDelco. The third-party suspension equipment may not be made from the same materials as the items from Honda, but it will be made to fit your car.
