WARNING - AFTERMARKET BALL JOINTS - DANGER!

Recommended Posts

Bump

 

Has anyone actually  fitted the MOOG K8142 ball joints into their XD or ZJ Fairlane?

 

I have bought those as upper balljoints and they fit fine for my XE and the lower control arms MOG-CK8123 as well. The bushes on the control arm uses 1/2 inch camber bolts but DO NOT GET MOG-ES363RL and MOG-ES360RL for the Tie Rod ends as the shaft is smaller and more likely to fit on the older Falcons like XK - XT.

THREAD UPDATED - pic's on page one!
[mention=21]Mr Polson[/mention], what upper ball joints does Repco sell in Tassy?
TRW. Silverline balljoints are long gone, unless a few stores have old stock laying around.

I personally prefer to offer WASP suspension parts to my customers if they can wait for it to be ordered in.
Unlike TRW, WASP parts are greasable, and normally around half the price.

Since this thread was created, there's a seller "Resto Country" who I've happily purchased items from in the past, wondering if anyone has any knowledge or experience in regards to the steering and suspension parts they now offer for our X-series?

 

Specifically https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Ford-Ball-Joint-UPPER-XA-XB-XC-XD-XE-XF-XG-Falcon-Fairlane-ZF-ZG-ZH-ZK-ZJ-ZL-x2/351418552391 and whether anyone has previously asked what brand or specs they supply? The price seems good, better than some others, but as we know from this thread, going on price alone is dangerous here.

 

If no one already knows, I may ask the question directly.

mate if it's made in china don't buy it, I went through this and with the value of XD/XE's going through the roof at the moment just buy mustang arms and use US made ball joints, screw in type 

 

I have rolled an XF because of a failed ball joint and was lucky the cage saved me, will never buy a china made critical part again for these things unless I'm giving it to someone I don't like

 

When I see tie rod ends and ball joints on eBay I cringe .....but like they say when buying helmets ... Where there is no sense there is no feeling 

 

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sdk-d0oz-3049-a/make/ford/model/mustang these would probably be the ticket methinks for a cheap ball joint that's probably better than 99% of shit available in Australia
