Adjustable front ball joints
 
Hey guys, just spotted this, its a height adjustable ball joint for the front control arm. :woot:

Has anyone ever fitted one of these? They also have an adjustable tie rod end to sort out any bump steer issues.

Being solid metal bearings, wouldn't those be pretty harsh for street use?

254 euro? That's a lot. I'd rather just stick with the Meyle HD arms and the replaceable metal ball joints...just wish more sponsors sold the replacement ball joints.

Sorry guys, should have been more specific on this one.

Firstly yes i'm sure it will be harsher than a stock or HD joint and that is a negative for me but I still have a poly and a stock joint at the other end so hopefully wont be too bad.

Secondly the whole point of this is that it is adjustable, meaning that I can raise the roll center back up towards the stock height and therefore reduce roll and also gain some much needed dynamic camber on the front. The latter being something that is much needed from stock let alone on a lowered car!:thumbup:

Bump!

Perhaps this is better suited in the motorsport section?...any mods about?
