This is a discussion on Ball joints and tie rod ends...OEM or replacement? within the Suspension & Wheels forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; I've been looking and haven't found performance replacements, only the normal stuff. So, should I get OEM or eBay replacements ...

    Ball joints and tie rod ends...OEM or replacement?

    I've been looking and haven't found performance replacements, only the normal stuff.

    So, should I get OEM or eBay replacements are OK?

    Are there high quality, tough replacements?

    Don't ever use random eBay parts, especially for essential suspension parts! Unless you don't care about your car crashing when the part fails.

    Not sure what year/model you drive, but it sounds like you want this: Whiteline Front Roll Center Kit

    Thanks Brazilnut, that's very true.

    My car is not lowered, so I don't need a "Roll Kit". I did found out that Proforged parts are recommended and they sell at various online stores, including eBay. What follows are adjustable types, like Ingalls, but those are expensive and I don't do tracks. I just need tough units for our, sometimes, unpleasant roads.

    Proforged was out of ball joints, but will receive them this week, so I'll be solving my problem soon.
