Ball joints are basically socket style joints that fit between the front control arms and the steering knuckles. They allow the strut assemblies to pivot independent from the control arm. These joints are commonly ignored during routine maintenance, which ultimately leads to wear and eventually failure. Bad ball joints can cause a range of issues, from front end vibration or clunking to uneven tire wear and loose or vague steering feel. Sold individually; 2 required per car. Includes boot, clamp, cotter pin, and zerk fitting.

*Model Notes:
If you own a 70 240Z, you'll need to use steering knuckles from a later car (71-78) to use these ball joints, as the 1970 models use a smaller ball joint, which is not currently available.
