Howe Precision Ball Joints offer the precision of a spherical bearing with the misalignment range of a ball joint. Their rugged steel housings will withstand impacts that can destroy other ball joints. Plus, even if you manage to damage the joint, they are fully rebuildable. The alloy steel ball studs are process coated for low friction and long wear. You will feel the difference in smooth travel and easy steering effort.

                        IMCA's 2004 rules now allow the stock car class to use spec tubular  upper control arms. The stock arms are getting hard to find and don't  have the strength of the tubular design. Bolts to your stock mount and  accepts stock ball joints.  This control arm is going to have a 1/4" thick plate where the ball joint bolts in.  Mid-size GM metric only.

Not all ball joint are created equal.  That's why AFCO uses the best components from the top manufacturers.  There are many different design characteristics and manufacturing processes that account for the quality and performance of ball joints.  These joints will give you the AFCO advantage!

  • 10 degree taper
  • use reamer part #10680771

AFCO 20032LF K5208 Low Friction GM Upper Ball Joint
                        

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
