What's in the Box

Info

AFCO Low Friction Ball Joints are designed with 2 ft. lbs. of resistance, the force required to move the stud of the ball joint.  Compare this with standard replacement joints, with as high as 50 ft. lbs. of resistance.  A difference you can feel!  It is critical to handling that suspension components be as free as possible to move.  Low friction ball joints allow the suspension to give rather than allowing the tire to bounce over rough surfaces.  Low tire pressures magnify the need to minimize friction in the suspension.

  • Precision machined to tight tolerances, providing consistent resistance throughout the travel of the ball joint to deliver consistent performance
  • Improves weight transfer
  • Frees up suspension for more consistent, repeatable chassis tuning
  • Removes suspension rigidity and allows shock and spring to have more precise wheel control
  • Adjustments are controlled more effectively by the shock and spring instead of the tire which improves traction
  • Provides more accurate set-ups during vehicle scaling
  • Meets or exceeds standard ball joint strength
  • Stock appearing
  • Lower input steering efforts and faster steering wheel return

This ball joint will press into a '78 to '88 G body or '82 to '02 2wd S-10. The spindle will have to be reamed for the larger stud in this ball joint. If you are looking for a stock replacement Afco low friction ball joint for that application it would be 10620039LF. That ball joint will press into the lower control arm and have the the stock size/height stud.

Yes the stud is longer than stock. It is approximately 3/4" longer. The stud is also larger in diameter and will require that the spindle be reamed with reamer 91089412.
