Video: QA1 Shows Simple Method For Rebuildable Ball Joints

ubj01Customizing your car’s suspension can often mean that you need to find ball joints that can keep up with those modifications. Sometimes, building a race car puts stress on factory-type ball joints, and many of them aren’t able to handle the extra duty that we put them through. QA1 has the answer for your ball joint blues, and their Ultimate Ball Joint is designed for performance.

Available in bolt-in, screw-in and press-in styles, the Ultimate Ball Joint has been designed to be extremely wear resistant, and will handle just about anything you put it through. It’s available for many street and racing applications, and operates at very low friction. How low? The infinite preload adjustment allows the breakaway torque to be set down to 0 ft. lbs.

ubj02The precision tolerance of the Ultimate Ball Joint results in even load distribution; wear resistance is extremely high, and this provides a long life with smooth operation. The ball joint can even be adjusted on the car, so there’s no need to remove it.

Inside, the fully greaseable ball joint is enhanced by self-lubricating components, and the ball studs are available in varying lengths to fine tune your suspension and roll center. When it comes time to rebuild them, or to change over to a longer stud, this can be easily done on the bench using the tools that QA1 can provide you with.

In the video above, QA1 shows us how simple it is to rebuild the Ultimate Ball Joint with hand tools. It’s roughly a couple of minutes to take the ball joint apart, and to replace the new components. If you’re looking to upgrade to a rebuildable ball joint, be sure to check out the Ultimate Ball Joint for your hard core racecar from QA1.
