Q & A

What's in the Box

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

Better front end geometry

August 12, 2013
These sure do help the front end get through the corner, the only draw back that I have found is the extended length makes them a little weaker and more prone to bending.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Will these improve my roll center compared to stock ball joint? will these work as well as the long truck ball joints would? Wissota street stock. Looking to improve handling. Thanks

Yes this ball joint will lower your roll center as well as putting more angle in the upper control arm which will improve you camber curve. Longer upper ball joints vs. lower ball joints will do different things. We suggest you map out your roll center to determine the best combination of ball joints for your car.

Tubular control arms - exact fit? Would these ball joints work directly with the IMCA Tubular control arms (Part# 91034393-L) or would there need to be an adapter/sleeve? The fit seems very loose. This would be for dirt/circle track use.

Yes this ball joint will bolt right into the IMCA metric upper A or a stock Metric upper A. It is 1/2" taller than the stock ball joint and does not require reaming the spindle.

length and how they fit How much longer is the ball joint? Do they fit the stock spindle or do they have to be reemed? Do they bolt into a stock upper control arm?

This ball joint is ½” taller than a stock ball joint (K5208). It will bolt into the control arm and spindle of a car that used a K5208 ball joint without modification.

(Part #106200321LF)
                        

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!

These are NOT a direct fit in the stock pickup A-frames. Used on IMCA cars to raise roll center (raised pivot point).

  1. These ball joint use a 1973-95 GM Truck taper, but they have a longer (taller) stud than the stock GM part. The taller stud changes the pivot point due to its length, which in turn raises the cars roll center. Very common ball joint on IMCA Modifieds.
  2. Lower ball joint fits most stut cars, 1971-1976 Impala and most wide-type dirt cars. Press-In.
  3. Fits most popular racing and passenger car spindles.
