Re: [DML] Super Strength Ball Joints



I think you can have plenty of piece of mind with the
ball joints you have,provided they are the correct
type.Tom's Ball Joint failure is the first I've ever
heard of on a DeLorean,although it may have happened
before.But since it was a non genuine part I don'think
we've got anything to worry about.Sure, maybe they
could be better, but why would a vendor go the 
considerable trouble and expense to develop a new part
when the one we have is perfectly okay.I bet a large
majority of DeLoreans out there are still running on
the original ball joints and I don't hear reports of
ball joints failing all over the place.My car was a
daily driver for several years and all that went wrong
with my ball joints was the boots split and the grease
leaked out.The joint itself was fine.
IMHO a much bigger area of concern in the front
suspension is the lower control arms.18 months ago my
left one snapped in two near the ball joint.Luckily I
was going slowly, backing into my garage when it
happened, but if it had happened on my way to work
going 100km/h the results could have been pretty bad
to say the least.
So check you control arms and don't worry about the
ball joints.
