In leu of enumerating the materials, processes and design characteristics of our Ball Joints, we’re just going to stand behind this component for as long as you own it. If for any reason the performance of our Ball Joint declines, Carli will stand behind it. For the life of your purchase. After the finalization of the R&D process we are confident that this part will never fail.
The ball joints start out as a chunk of specialty chosen material which is machined to our unique design and then heat treated to a specified rockwell (hardness). From there the ball joints head to an aero-space lube company where a proprietary dry-lube coating is applied to our specified thickness. And of course we top them off with an accessible zerk fitting for easy servicing, plus we even include a tube of high quality synthetic grease with each ball joint set.
LOWER BALL JOINT OVERVIEW:
The lower ball joints are the true ball joints in the AAM design. The spherical lower is a ball and socket design allowing lateral misalignment (unlike the king-pin upper). Because the design tracks the knuckle on an imperfect axis, the spherical lower is required to allow the knuckle to move freely with only a slight vertical travel through its steering cycle. By design, the lower factory joint is a pin isolated from the housing by a nylon material loaded from the top and sealed by a press with a boot to keep out the elements. When this composite liner fails, the ball joint needs to be replaced. It’s the old saying, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
