Ball Joint Questions

For a couple of days now I keep hearing a metal-metal rubbing sound from my front driver's side wheel when I am turning left. I finally had time today to jack up the car and inspect it. I found that the ball joint boot is ripped so I am now looking for a pair of replacements. Might as well change out both.

After some brief research, there are several options offered by ClubRSX and I would like to purchase from ClubRSX. What is the difference between the BC, Deeza, Hardrace, and SPC ball joints?

My car is dropped on Eibach Sportlines and I hope to upgrade to full coilovers soon, and it is strictly a DD. Will it be overkill to upgrade to something like BC if I don't track?

I don't know much about suspension so any help would be awesome. Thanks.

Deeza is OEM style. It is not overkill to adjust roll center, so just get whatever one is cheapest. They all are solid roll center adjusters.

Thanks. I'll probably go with Deeza. It's a good price point for me. Do you know anything else about the brand? I can't find anything as far as review for these things.

I think I'm going to go ahead and change out the front LCA bushings. The CRSX store shows a red and black kit. The image shows a design difference. Is there any difference in them besides color?

get black. And never heard of Deeza. For ball joints, I've only heard of Sankei 555 and Moog for OEM replacements.

I went ahead and ordered a pair of the Deeza lower ball joints and the black front LCA bushing kit, which is on backorder. I wanted to get this done all at once since they have to get pressed in

So I'll most likely get the ball joints put in when they arrive since the stock on is ripped and wait on the bushing kit. Hopefully the Deeza ball joints are good and have no problems. I wouldn't think CRSX would sell POS parts.

anyone heard of Sankei 555? napa has them for about $33. i ordered the deeza from here but they're on backorder for 4 weeks

here's the Sankei 555 for $32.99:Napa part # ATM SB6272

and here's the other, more expensive one at Napa for $55.99: Napa part # NCP 2601578

for $55.99 each i might as well go for the Hardrace or BC ones. is sankei a good deal? keep in mind i'm putting on a-spec suspension soon. i just ordered them.
