Default Extended Lower Ball Joint Group Buy--FIRST shipment

Okay, This is a one-time only deal as I want to get these out and in use, but at the same time don't want to cheese off the good people at FM, Good-Win, Miata Roadster, etceteras, who will be carrying these parts when they arrive by boat.

PLEASE only add your name if the extended lower ball joints will be going on your car soon and you can give feedback. There are lots more coming.

These are NA/NB (1990-2005) Extended Lower Ball Joints that will add approximately 3 degrees of negative camber at stock ride height, with a typical camber adjustment from -.5 to -3.5. So...can use with daily drive camber or extend to race camber. Lowered cars will see more extreme negative camber gain.

These are top quality forged LBJ's that don't need break-in and install quickly.

Your Christmas price is $100/pr., plus tax if in CA & $10 ship. I can only open 10 pair right now, as I'm not sure how many are shipping early by air. If only 8 pair arrive, then the top 8 get. If more arrive, I'll add to the list.

Payment by PayPal after the parts have been received.

Merry Christmas!!!

being that they haven't shipped yet, you can probably just cancel the order

Eh, with those, I'm guaranteed to get them. These, I might not be high enough on the list for 2 sets.

Wouldn't hurt to throw the name on the list. I mean, the $80 saved for the two pairs would practically be free ARP wheel studs.

Any idea when these will ship? I have all my control arms off right now to do poly bushings and want to get these thrown on asap before I get the alignment done.

I'm in if someone backs out. During the tear down I've found the ball joints on the V8 Roadster LCA have slipped during the season.

Wow.....that was FAST. I'll give everyone an update as soon as they're available, and will confirm the quantity that arrived.

Default NASA approval!

This just in: Keith Tanner at Flyin' Miata got in touch with NASA early regarding the ELBJ's. NASA has seen, tested and APPROVED the ball joints, pending some way to mark them properly. These 10 are the EARLY batch, so if they're going on your racer, you might want to wait until the marking situation is finalized.
