Do I need to remove the shock absorbers to change the ball

Customer Question

do I need to remove the shock absorbers to change the ball joints on santa fe 2006
JA: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?
Customer: no
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I just had this done at a garage and yesterday a bolt of the shock absorbers came off and the wheel assy of course fell croocked my question is because if the shock absorber had to come off perhaps the mech at the garage failed to install one or did not tighten one properly
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: that's about it

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Yes the bolt would need to come off to remove the lower control arm. Because the shock is mounted to the lower control arm.

I would take it back to the shop who worked on it last.
