Proforged .90" taller upper ball-joints

Who makes the ball-joints for them?

Is MOOG still in business and making these for Proforged?

Bob,

Thanks, but I am looking at taller ball-joints to help raise the front roll center on my car.

I have Pro-Motorsports Spindle Extenders on it now that raise it 1-15/16". I'm looking for something more like 1-1/4" to 1-1/2". Quite a bit taller than the .90" being sold and way taller than the 1/2".

I'm pretty sure ProForged has their own forgings produced in Taiwan. I have their tall ball joints on my '66 Chevelle. First rate quality. I accidentally ripped a boot while installing a lower ball joint. I called ProForged to see if I could buy just the boot. They shipped me an entire new ball joint assembly at no cost. They wouldn't even let me cover the shipping. I can't say enough about their customer service. Unheard of these days.

Another option If ProForged can't supply what you need - Howe makes a rebuildable ball joint with different length studs available. They have some pretty tall studs available.

On a side note, if. You need a new centerlink for your Chevelle, ProForged now makes a reproduction with the correct bends that doesn't hit the crossmember like the previously available reproductions.

Good luck,

Dirk

Thanks Dirk for the info.

I will look deeper into Howe.
