Hey,
I just wanted to let everyone know that the power performance balljoints are definately worth buying. I just recently finished my air ride install on my s10 and I used factory replacement upper and lower balljoints. After the bags were put in, we let the air out to lay it flat. Well.. the fatory style uppers were putting the susp. in a bind and only letting the frame come within an inch or so of laying flat. Keep in mind I'm running 215/45/17s right now, trimmed lca and trimmed bag cups. So to say the least, the $40 spent was well worth it.

later,
Mike

Yeah they come with them from what I hear. You can also buy them seperately. All I know is that I'm a believer now lol.

They do come with the SD control arms, and we do sell them on an individual basis too. A lot of time went into designing our ball joints.

We subscribe to the "overengineering" philosophy here - we know how you guys love the beefy stuff.

Yeah they'll work with our stock control arms. I found out that the factory style ones were binding when we adjusted the camber all the way in and it layed out. Basically we ended up taking the nuts completely out.
To find them on SD.com just go to the Control Arm section.. They sell both the upper and lower ones. $40 a pair. WELL worth it..

wait wait wait, I thought the factory ball joints were pressed in, arent these new ones bolt in. So one would just press out the old ones and drill some holes to mount them? Will this eliminate the need to pie cut? (someone please post yes twice, or I'll be disapointed)
