Steeda x2

I need new balljoints and am looking at the steeda x2 since I want my front a little lower. Is .5 inches worth the drop or should I just get cheaper ball joints?

I, actually, just put brand new A-arms with new balljoints and bushings on my car... I'm probably going to rebuild my old A-arms with Maximum Motorsports bushings and X2 balljoints and put those on.
I think that, on my car, a 1/2 inch drop will be good.
Supposedly, they help with the front end geometry as well.

Yes, it will be a different ... you will get about a 1/2 drop with the x2 ball joints.

You can reach me at tim@steeda.com if you would like to discuss.

Best Regards,

TJ

Doe_Rae_mi,

You'll definitely notice a half inch drop in the front. It won't be a huge difference, but certainly noticeable. Your Mustang is already lowered a good bit though. A half inch may be just want you need.

Not to mention you'll reap the benefits of a high quality Steeda ball joint. Improving the overall steering response and front body roll of your Mustang. Which IMO, you can't go wrong with either way!

I'd take TJ @ Steeda up on his offer. He's a really knowledge guy and he'll definitely point you in the right direction!

Shane

X2 balljoints are the shaznats. If you use the included spacer you will not get any drop, if you leave it out, 1/2" drop. You'll need an alignment either way so that's a wash, I'd leave it out and get the drop.
