It's bit unfair to compare 200k original balljoints to Proforged. Though they weren't as bad but day and night difference without a doubt.

Stock upper bushing were shot on one side and ok on the other side.

Del a Lum upgrade is worth the money. Website states 100k, so I'll find out in couple years.

Any one doing Auto-X on the truck, del a lum is a must have upgrade.

My brother has 100% ZQ8 S10. He was impressed with how it rides/steers, he bought entire Proforged front end kit. Since his will retain stock style balljoints, we will compare driving difference. Both truck aligned by same mechanic wth similar Bilstein shocks.

I'll install new stock upper bushing on his just to see how his does before Del a Lum bushing kit goes in.

Steering is responsive and very good control. Its hard to fathom that it isn't drop suspension.

I definitely will be getting Del a Lum lower bushing kit.
