  • Name
  • Maintenance Free Ball Joints

    Developed and tested over a period of three years, the original concept was to manufacture a high quality product, similar to those used on modern vehicles. Unlike the current design, the maintenance free ball joints do not require periodic adjustments of the shim, and are pre-loaded for easy installation. Mounted in the same way as the original, these are a direct replacement, and can be fitted to the top and bottom without upsetting the suspensions geometry.

  • Remove the rubber dust boot prior to installation

  • Care should be taken when fixing the blue retainer clip

With no shimming required, fitting the maintenance free ball joints can be done in a relatively short period of time. For those without a deep socket, simply remove the dust boot prior to fitting, and tighten to torque. While the rubber dust boot is highly durable, care should be taken when securing the blue retainer clip. To prevent water from entering the joint, grease is recommended to extend the lifespan. Other than for exceptional circumstances, does not require additional grease-up once fitted.

Estimated lifespan of up to 10 years or 50,000kms.
