Which tall upper ball joint
This post is a side note to my post on my "baffling" suspension issue. I'm going to reinstall the stock spindles on my Ride Tech control arms as a test. I'm told I need to have a tall ball joint to prevent binding with the Ride Tech upper arm. Proforged make a .5 inch tall and a .9 inch extra tall ball joint. I currently have the tall L&H spindles which are 1 1/2 taller than stock.
My question is which tall ball joint would work better, the .5 or .9? The .9 seems like an obvious choice as I already have been using a 1 1/2 inch taller spindle, but that also seems like a lot of leverage on the ball joint.
I'm also going to order the tall outer tie rod ends as recommended to help reduce bumpsteer.
I've check David Pozzi's site but I can only find info on the .5 ball joint.
Thanks for any insight.
