We really don't expect them to wear out while any particular person owns the car. 100K? 200K? Possible depending on environmental factors, grit that could get it, that sort of thing. But realistically, we don't think you'd ever have to replace them... that's why the lifetime warranty is easy for us to offer.

That's a reasonable expectation, to have some extension of the balljoint life... but a lot of the balljoint wear occurs from standard motion cycling.

The limitation of fore/aft movement is how the OE bushing allows the arm to push backwards further, especially as the OE rubber weakens.

"Limited" means we don't cover accident damage, fire damage, if they were put on backwards, if they were deliberately modified, silly stuff like that. They are covered for all reasonable use.
