Adjustable ball joints.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am an Esprit driver, not the Elise, but I saw some nice adjustable front track arm balljoints, for the Elise on Elise-shop in Holland. I would like to know if anyone on here have tried them, and how they peform? Any comments, info and experience are most wellcome. I have not seen this type of ball joint for sale anywhere else .

I am interested in them, because I can try to find the sweetspot for best performance and the lowest amount of stiction on moving parts, balljoints included.

And secondly, I'd like to know if they keep imensions that would suit my Lotus Esprit Turbo SE from 1990?

I measured my old lower front ball joints I just pulled out, and they are 89mm total height, 43,3mm pressfit diameter, M14x1,5 thread, 49mm rod height and 49mm total width.

Does that seem to be like an Elise?

Kind regards,

Jacques

The press fit diameter of an Elise Ball Joint is 40mm, I'm afraid that won't fit.
