Im looking for any info on balljoints to run on a metric car that can raise the rollcenter without all the work. Ive always used the afco tall ball joints, but **** you got to torch out the hole then redrill the holes for the bolts and the bottom ball joints you got to die grind the hole out then press in a sleeve and they seem to do the trick but man its a pain especially if you got a spare and have to go to it on Friday then Saturday morning youre trying to put together another spare. Its a pain and Im looking for a balljoint that could make this alot more simpler. anything new on the market? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Hey look into a ball joint reamer, will eliminate all that work you are doing! Havn't used one but sound like they work well.

look into howes ball joints. you can get them in and style and any stud taper and you can order longer studs up to 1/2" longer. and they are very tough! this way you can just bolt them in without the reaming ect..

Go to look at the (Mid-size) GM mono ball joint. It corrects upper a arm angle and raises roll center. No drilling, or reamer needed.
