Steeda's X2 Balljoint improves suspension geometry on lowered Mustangs by raising the spindle relative to the balljoint pivot-point. This raises the rollcenter back into the correct range for optimum handling, resulting in reduced body roll, quicker steering response, and improved overall front tire grip. Steeda's special balljoint reduces the need for oversize front swaybars and allows the use of lower front spring rates, creating more grip over uneven pavement and better ride quality. Any time you alter the height of your ride, as you do when you install lowering springs, you upset the steering geometry. You can easily bring your front end back into spec with a set of Steeda X2 ball joints. Restore roll center geometry and lower your car's center of gravity. Steeda bump-steer kit is highly recommended to prevent bump-steer whenever caster-camber plates are used in combination with the X2 balljoint. Because the balljoint changes the relationship between the lower control arm and the tie-rod, bump-steer should be checked whenever the X2 balljoint is installed. With stock caster settings, offset rack bushings are often enough to keep bump-steer within an acceptable range. However, when the caster is increased, the rear inclination of the spindle further raises the steering arm where the tie-rod attaches. Therefore, an adjustable tie rod end, commonly called a "bump-steer kit", is highly recommended to prevent bump-steer whenever caster camber plates are used in combination with the X2 balljoint.
It will not work with stock 87-93 brakes because of interference between the rotor and the repositioned control arm.
The X2 balljoint has a longer shaft, to raise the spindle relative to the balljoint pivot point. Spacers for the springs are included in the X2 kit to maintain the same ride height as a stock balljoint, but with a much improved roll center height. With the roll center restored to the proper height, smaller front swaybars and softer springs can be used. The result is a suspension that works for you to accommodate the small and large imperfections that are in any road or track, allowing the tires to stay planted on the ground where they belong.
The balljoints are made in the USA to Steeda's specifications by a respected name-brand supplier to Ford, GM and Daimler Chrysler. Except for their custom length, they are the same materials and construction that has been extensively tested in Panther applications, that is, police cars and other severe duty applications, where they have demonstrated durability that exceeds current production "regular" balljoints. They meet Ford's standards for friction, wear, and durability.
