Produced by Bauer Limited Production these ISO 9001 certified extended lower ball joints give you easy access to additional negative camber. Increases your available camber by -2* to -3* allowing a MX5 with stock ride height to achieve -.5* to -3* of camber!
The extended lower ball joints will not slip like offset bushings and give you additional coilover spring to wheel clearance. Fits all 1990-2005 Mazda Mx5's. Yes, SCCA legal for STR, STS, etc.
Includes new nuts and cotter pins for installation. Price is per PAIR.
The threads on the rear tab of this ball joint where it connects to the control arm matches the factory threads - which is Metric M12x1.5. However, if your car has had the ball joints replaced at a previous point in its life with auto parts store units, some of those had different threading and therefore came with their own hardware to match those threads. For those cases, you'll need to source either a factory bolt or get new hardware from any hardware store in that factory size.
If you still have your original ball joints, your hardware will be compatible. In some cases, you may need to run a tap through this threaded tab to clean the threads of the corrosion-resistant coating if the bolt is having trouble threading in.
As with all race parts with non-oem dimensions, it is up to the installer/owner to check that clearances in the suspension are OK after installation and make adjustments if necessary. Once these ball joints are installed and after re-setting the alignment we recommend checking your clearance between the shock and front upper control arm through the full range of motion of the suspension. Do this by removing the spring and then using a jack to compress the suspension.
