Ball joint specifications

Post by exhaustgases » Tue Dec 22, 2015 5:39 am

So where do you go to find a specification chart for ball joints. For example Moog. Or what ever manufacture makes them. Moog has a good page for springs.

I need something similar for ball joints.

So where are the specifications on them? I need the diameters of the large area that presses in the control arm, and the length of the threaded taper, the angle of the taper. They are not going to have the ball joint listed for the vehicle. I need the numbers.

I think Speedway may list two tapered reamers for ball-joints. Probably for Chevys though?

As for screw-in type base like I want to say Mopar, just go to a good friendly parts place and ask the counter person if you can measure several of them.

I did this when I put my "pdqCBB" 4-wheel disc brake setup on my car to find what I could make fit in the way of rotors. Handled at least 6 of them that the store was good enough to bring in for me to check.....

Now back to your deal. You may have to install steel plugs in your arms or whatever and then drill and ream for stud taper to what is available that suits your application. No biggie, but it is a small hassle. Same with the base of whatever ball joint you think will work for you.

Sorry, not of much help here and I can't even find out who makes the taller studs in the tall ball-joints now, much less stock, 1967 Camaro front roll center measurements.. They make a 0.9" tall stud, and I would like to have a 1.25" tall one is all, depending on what my front roll center turns out to be going from stock to modified.
