Mitsubishi Challenger Front Ball Joints - How Much Play Tolerence?

Have a 2000 Mitsubishi Challenger currently getting it ready for roadworthy and the front balljoints have some movement.

It's a 4wd, are they different to 2wd? Is there a mm tolerance for moment of the front ball joints? Backyard mechanic is not sure if they need to be replaced or if 4wd can have more play.

    Most members here only drive and service BMW and MB 2019+ so you might be out of luck.

    There should be no movement in the ball joint, unless you can find a mitsubishi specification that says otherwise.

      Basically this. 0 is pretty close to what it should have.

    Check with your roadworthy mechanic wether they’ll pass it or not.

    If you can measure the play in mm, it's very stuffed.

    Thanks for the comments will just replace before roadworthy.
