Damn. I didn't think of that!
Okay well just finished going outside and jacked up the driver side first. Grabbed the rim and tried moving it left and right. It did, a little. Not like if my lugs were lose just a slight movement left and right. It didn't move up and down. Decided to take off the wheel just to look around again, and i saw this.
Is that the ball joint? Could this be what's making the noise? And wow how does that even happen? I'm scared to drive now.
Jacked up the other side. Moved the wheel and nothing really happened so that's good I guess.
Took off the wheel and noticed that the boot on this side was off.
But I could just move it back so its covered. Like this.
I don't know what to do. Is it safe to drive? I drove to work yesterday, just tried to ignore the noise.
My uncle who is gonna come thursday to check it out and see what he says. Is it okay to take my car to work today? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
