i wanna use these bad mothers.


"Massive 1/4" thick chrome moly housing machined to exacting tolerances then heat treated for durability. Ball is made from heat treated chrome moly and finish ground to exacting tolerances. The taper is the large Chrysler truck (the biggest in the trucks) . The threads are rolled on for maximum strength complete with a high strength castle nut and cotter pin. A machined Delrin bushing that can be shimmed for longer life buts up against a nicely finished steel top and the whole assembly is protected by a simple rubber boot. Cone ball joints have a full 90 degrees of angularity."

i always put them in hoppers i have seen them bend big time on serious hoppers and also seen them break so they arnt unbreakable but they are stronger than the stock 1s but as a comparison i put std replacement ball joints in our truck hopper along with street cylinders to see if they would last and so far they are fine
