I think a kogel is a bearing but I don't know which one. Is this the wheel bearing? Have you replaced the wheel bearing yourself and failed to adjust it properly?

I think the problem with your power steering is an air leak? This means that the engine power will be very low at idle and the extra load caused by the power steering pump is making the engine stall. If this is true, then the problem is not the power steering but an air leak on the engine. You need to check the rubber air hoses for signs of cracking or splitting.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
Cheers, Neil

Is it the engine that shakes or vibrates?

What do you mean by shaking? Does the front end wobble around when you are driving or something?

If it's the engine check out the motor mounts.

Does the idle speed fluctuate at idle?

Good luck,

If I understand you correctly, you changed the ball joint. Did you replace one side or both? It seems obvious to me that after you changed the ball joint, a severe vibration resulted.

I'd recheck your work to see that every suspension component is attached correctly and that the ball-joint is also correctly installed.

If you didn't do it, take it back to the shop immediately.
