Lemforder is what I had in my car, never was a problem for me. I tried Meyles once, they didn't have the same travel as the Lemforders did.

Just so I'm sure, what's an indication that the problems the ball joint?

My steering wheel shakes back and fourth from 70 to 120, at first I thought it might be a bearing, but there's no noise and the hub doesn't seem to be loose... Could it be the balljoint? (I've also gone through balancing and allignment twice, both at different places ...)

I was told by my cousin that ball joints could be the problem, any thoughts?
