Steeda bumpsteer ball joints

1994 Cobra with Steeda springs that lower the front 1" and the back 1 1/4" plus Steeda bumpsteer ball joints that are intended for lowered vehicles. Latemodelrestoration.com implies that the bumpsteer ball joints take over the steering process from the operator and possibly a risk if the roadway is not smooth. Question -- is there enough concern to replace the bumpsteers with FOMOCO ball joints?

Re: Steeda bumpsteer ball joints

not really, i had factory balljoints and tierod ends a 2.5" front drop and never had too bad of an issue, it just jerks hard when you hit potholes and stuff, not beyond driver control though, when i did my kmember, i opted for the upr bumpsteer just to have them solid mount.

<<<<< when the pic used for my avatar was taken, it still had the original factory steering componets, also most bumpsteer kits are tie rod ends, not just bal joints, not sure about just changing the ball joints making a difference.

Re: Steeda bumpsteer ball joints

Thanks for your time and information. I should have been clearer on the bumpsteer being a kit including tie rod and ball joint. My plan to change to FOMOCO would included the tie rod and ball joint. No experience with bumpsteer system so did not want to end up in someones front living room. Again, thanks! Saved me time and money since bumpsteer kits go for aroung $150.00 plus.
