Don't know about the road noise. I didn't notice any more noise than before but it's hard to hear any road noise over my fuel pump and magnaflow muffler. It should not have any more noise than a car with urethane bushings which I'm not sure if that is noiser than rubber or not?

Great job i am doing parts of what you did. What can you tell me about the chrysler screw in ball joint - like suggested model # and where did the threaded female piece come from?

Thanks for great documentation

The ball joint part number is k772. Chrysler upper ball joint. I buy them and the sleeves from speedway. Don't forget you must also ream the spindles to fit the larger diameter of the chrysler ball joint. It's a 7 degree taper just like corvair, just bigger.

I'm glad this one popped back up. I remember it the first time.

Nate - how have they held up? Still as good as when you first did it?

Yeah, still as good as the day I put them in. But sadly not driving my car this summer due to a cam gear failure sad smiley Hopefully I'll have it rebuilt in time to get a few cruises in before the weather goes to crap around here.

Thanks Nate,
When I looked up this ball joint is looks like they may make a couple? of versions - one maybe 1/4" longer and another 1/2" longer
What did you use? and do you know if they mean just the threaded part (for a thicker steering knuckle or do they mean longer as in overall (resulting in more lowering)
I think you said what you used lowered an additional 1" from what the stock BJoint results in.

I really appreciate your article and response!

The standard length ball joint will lower the car 1 inch up front which is what I used. The extended length ball joints will lower the car even more. It is the tapered shaft that is longer on the extended ones.
