Improve suspension geometry on lowered Mustangs by raising the spindle relative to the ball joint pivot point with Steeda's X2 Ball Joints. This raises the roll center back into the correct range for optimum handling. The end result is reduced body roll, quicker steering response, and improved overall front tire grip. X2 ball joints reduce the need for oversized front sway bars and allow use of lower front spring rates, which creates more grip over uneven pavement and better ride quality.
Steeda ball joints use the same materials and construction that has been extensively tested in police cars and other severe duty applications. The X2 ball joint has demonstrated durability that exceeds current production ball joints. They even meet Ford's standards for friction, wear and durability.
Features and Benefits:
- Restores front end roll center geometry
- Improved front end grip and steering response
- Reduced understeer at cornering limit
- High quality construction
- Includes spacers for the springs to maintain the same ride height as a stock ball joint
Once a Mustang is lowered, the pivot points of the suspension change which changes the front roll center. If the car is lowered too much, the roll center will drop well below ground level, and move side to side as the body rolls. This results in lost grip and erratic handling. To counter this problem, a very high front spring rate is needed to subdue the addition of body roll. You'll end up with a rough ride quality and reduced grip on bumpy surfaces because stiff spring rates cause the tire to skip over bumps. Steeda's X2 Ball Joints are designed to specifically cure this issue.
