I need to know what ball joints are being used. MY moog's say 5730 on them with the DS marked 18 and the PS marked 19. Any pics of arms installed would be appreciated as well. Trying to fix my turning issue, possibly an issue with A-Arm install.

I was talking about the way the ball joint is mounted. On Stgman's ball joints his are mounted from the bottom and the other pics look as if the ball joint is dropped in the hole and then bolted down.

ok guys, turned the driver side a-arm in the other direction and got my steering back :) Problem is now is that my brake caliper banjo slammed into lower control arm stop causing it to leak. Is this due to the alignment all screwed up??? I am not sure oif the caliper is suppose to be that low

Shop cant get the caster less then +9 degrees on both sides. I am tossing these uppers on the trash. I am tired of dealing with these things

Not sure what may have changed. I've been running the uppers for about 7 years and 20,000+ miles now. if I remember correctly the caster was set to about 4 degrees and didn't have much adjustment beyond that.

My only complaint is that the boots tend to pull away when the extension suspension extends.

They are "Perfect" for the trash!

First of all they are Not designed for street cars
Very little support tubing
No bump stop provision
No geometry correction
Two of the same side having to flip one

Great idea, Ralph.!
Like Scot said.. Junk. Sounds like the ones from Speedway... The throw away stock car stuff.
Hopefully, he didn't weld them up....;)
