X2 ball joints?

What's the point of these? I lowered my mustang 2 inches and dont really see the need for more suspension upgrades, I get prety good grip on my front wheels with the 245/35/18 wheels, do these lower your car more somehow? I just don't see how ball joints can do all that these claim and I hear alot of talk from you guys about them

If I had to guess I'd say they are a bit stronger than stock and are build for the different angle a lowered cars control arm sits at. But this is just a guess

X2 comes with a spacer, if you don't put the spacers on it will lower your car another half an inch.. I felt the same way before, i lowered mine a year ago and thougt that i don't need any other suspension upgrades after my alignment. After 8 months of enjoyment i felt my steering wheel shaking, i found out that my front tires has an uneven wear and broken tie rod end. Now i regret for not investing a cc plates, bumpteer kit and x2ball joint right from the start i lowered my car.

You can if you would like to ruin your tires.
