Ball Joint Spacers - Anyone seen these?

On eBay from a guy that claims to be making them from 6061-T6.

Good, Bad, Other?


I have some crazy (cast iron?) spacers from a car I bought made by General Suspension.

My friend who had the car said it rode great, but it looked strange to me and it had cracked both inner wheel wells.

Re: Ball Joint Spacers - Anyone seen these?

He's been selling those for some time. There is an earlier post about them and other style of spacers and extended stud ball joints.

I didn't know New Jersey was a state.........

Unhappy Re: Ball Joint Spacers - Anyone seen these?

They don't do anything except maybe help some weight transfer??

You have to either use a taller top ball-joint spindle or Pro Motorsports bolt-on spindle extenders to raise the upper ball-joints.

AND nobody makes a stock type, but raised top ball-joint forged spindle!!

Heidlt's make's a raised top ball-joint, but two inch dropped forged one tho... I figure maybe tie-rod/inner wheel lip problems here????
