With our experience off-roading and daily use of our trucks we found that the reused stock hardware is not always up to the task that get demanded of them. That's why we offer a fine thread socket-head bolt package that exceeds grade 8 strength. We also have increased torque specs to get the most out of this upgrade.
We install the socket-head on the bottom of the connection so that it the factory rubber boot doesn't interfere with wrenches or sockets. This helps decrease ball joint boot damage and increase the longevity of the joint. Also, the socket-head bolts make it easy to check the torque during install or out on the trail without having to remove the tire.
One Kit has enough hardware for (1) Upper Ball Joint.
- (4) socket-head bolts
- (4) centerlock lock nuts
- (8) washers
With these bolts you torque to 45 lb-ft (instead of 28-37 lb-ft with the stock bolts)
