the 75 chevy 3/4 ton lower ball joint works great.i use them in my metric lower only. the spindle does need reamed. costs me 10 bucks ea. i gain 1" in spindle hieght. i leave the upper alone. too many people always trying to see whats differant. best cornering car in my class. i also swap my upper a-arms l to r r to l side. i dont know why it works it just does. found out by accident.[IMG]p.s. you do have to spotweld the balljoint in lower arm. http://www.thedirtforum.com/ubb/smilies/cwm15.gif[/IMG]

By raising this roll center though, won't you have to go to a softer setup on the springs? I used the longer uppers last year with my previous spring set up. Car wouldn't roll in the front. Should I have softend the car?

raising the rollcenter (or more to the point, roll axis) relative to the cg height will reduce body roll (as an extreme example, if you raised your roll axis above your cg ... the car would roll left instead of right!).

with reduced body roll, you are free to use softer springs (I would).
