I'm sure most people don't want to read about someone's life story lol. 2 months ago a axle fix made me realize lower ball joint was going to go soon but it needed super man strength to remove after a long attempt with on blaster light taps and a lot of heat so I decided to remove knuckle from strut got that done 2 months ago. Then yesterday I decided to buy a new whee bearing for my hub since mine had a lot of clanking when I held it at the north and south poles and moved the tire (while on a stand) up and down. So I decided to remove the knuckle then realized holy crap it's my old ball joint I forgot about lol and it was a pain in the ass to get out a lot of on blaster 2 broken ball joint separators from harbor freight tools 1 bent picle fork and a lot of propane heat. Ended up cutting the ball joint off from control arm and decided to take off the lower control arm off to pound it out from bottom out or upside down. No one in town had a replacement ball joint called 10 different auto part stores nothing no one even had a registered part number for ball joints for a 2005 acura rsx type s and I read this post today and I said 98 prelude ball joints for 13.99 why not I'm past the pint of no return so I went for it lucky enough for me they actually worked thanks to this post! But yeah the castle but is too big you might need a smaller one in height. Because the locking pin won't go through anyways my long ass story to say yes 98 Honda ball joints do fit a 05 rsx type s I can vouch. Also pounded them in with river makes no damage done to it

This is an old thread but I am pretty sure there are still many others that will look to this thread to figure out their options. I'm doing the hard race joints on my black car which works for slightly lowered cars
https://www.kseriesparts.com/cr/HDR-6878.html
but for this other one at stock ride height I came across these. http://www.autozone.com/suspension-s...71257_447515_0
I can't even find them on the honda website to order the oem ones but these have the full ball inside instead of being pressed as the lower priced ones were. Does anyone have an actual parts number for the honda OEM version as I would rather put honda stuff in my car and do it once. Thanks

Honda Doesnt have Ball Joints, You have to buy the entire knuckle if you want OEM.

My solution was using 98 prelude ball joints, they are very tight with pressing them in but they work perfect.

I have been using then now for about a year now and still no issues.

Hope this helps

The DIY link has the Honda part numbers sprinkled in:

I don't know what you mean about not having the full ball inside -- they are all ball joints, no? Maybe you mean spherical ball (for RCA's)

Just from what I was reading on the Auto Zone website. I opted for the more expensive ones that are from Japan.
The Hard Race I ordered for my boosted RSX. Once I get both sets installed I will report back on the experience. The Prelude ball joints I ordered aren't exactly the same length but they are close. The Hard Race are longer and for slightly lowered cars, right where I will be at once I get it all back together.

bringing back an old thread. i did some searching and i dont have a clear answer. so i was hoping of some real world experience.

from a post from "Dr. Honda" and others there seems to be a consensus on the following:
02-06 Base = same throughout all years ball joint (small taper and body)
02-04 Type-S = same as above (small taper and body)
05-06 Type-S = unique to 05-06 Type-S (large taper and medium body)
02-06 Type-R = different knuckle and balljoint (large taper and body)


I am looking for replacement ball joints for my 05-06 Type-S. I know there are at least two threads and multiple people have successfully used Prelude ball joints. I know the dimensions are roughly the same and it works fine.

I was trying to see if there has been a direct replacement for the 05-06 Type-S ball joints.?? I saw on the hardrace site and kseriesparts that the the hardrace ones:
https://www.kseriesparts.com/HDR-8796.html

^^the fitment indicates it fits the base and type-S - but if this is the case it contradicts the experiences of others as summed by by the info above. i contacted hardrace and kseriespart but still no response.


So are there direct replacement ball joints for the 05-06 type-s?

You could call Acura to confirm if the 05/06 Base knuckles and Type S are the same part number. The Prelude ones dont work, get the Hardrace replacements.

I can confirm Hardrace 05-06 Ball Joints (Part 8796) fit 05-06 type S, and are a direct replacement. The experiences you are reading were before these ball joints were released. These were only released into the market in May 2017.

I know this is an old thread but i jut wanted to confirm that the ball joints for a 98 prelude do not fit an 05 type s...i just tried this last week, The ball joint could be pressed in by hand and when on the vehicle the ball joint could move up and down 1/4 inch in the knuckle . I had to go with Ktuned extended ball joints since all the hardrace and buddyclub ball joints are on back order till late april

I don't get it. I can confirm (as others have on this thread) that '98 Prelude ball joints do work for an '05 Type S. I bought the ACDelco Professional ones, for a '98 Prelude. Just like RunningDC5 says at the top, the castle nut is too thick/tall though to clear the hole for the cotter pin to go through, but I definitely had to pound the ball joints in the knuckle themselves

I believe to replace of face lift rsx ball joint, you need to buy the knuckle since it is only sold as an assembly (oem). Or you can find one at auto zone and open a can of worms.
