ebay xi inner ball joints?
 
Anybody have experience with these? $40 vs $110 per side is tempting but are they like most ebay suspension components, they fail when you look at them?

Do Not Buy.

Ball joints are a critical part of your car's integrity, don't cheap out on these.

I've had mine on for 7,000 miles. All is well. :D

Buy meyle lemforder febi bilsteins. Buy mtc or uro before resorting to those. Would you rock climb with thread as your safety line?

My original equipment inner ball joint lasted 120K before needing replacement. Went the cheap route, heck they looked good and were ~ 1/2 the cost of the Lemo's. Not !!!! Had to replace them again after about 25k . Get the Lemforders (however you spell it), less money in the end.

Awesome, glad to hear. Most ebay stuff is junk but sometimes you get lucky. Now i know to that the former applies to these.
