14mm ball joints
« on: October 24, 2014, 08:32:50 PM »
I was thinking about replacing my ball joints as it looks like there are 3 different brands of ball joint on my a-arms (was like this when I bought them used a few years ago). They are Burgard +2 arms and I believe they are 14mm. The ball joints themselves  seem to be fine but I don't like how some of them the nut is 3/4 threaded on.
Does any body know anything about these?

Or point me in the right direction for good ones at a good price.

Also I wouldn't mind having some of these for the uppers as my shocks are 1/4" longer than stock and it seems I am at the limit for binding.

I've heard a lot of people using 14mm MOOG ball joints (Part es2074). They're tie rod ends for old b2000's. From what I've seen, they look well made and are priced pretty well. But I've never used them. Maybe somebody here has used them and can chime in and give their 2 cents about it.  

Here's an auction I just found:

I thought about those too but read that the shank that goes in the a-arm seems to be a little short and the nut barely threads on. Kinda like the situation I have now. I almost think those are what are on the bottoms of mine now.

i have the laegers +2 a arms that the burgard arms are a copy of what i did was use the moog ball joints on the upper arms and retapped the lowers for ricky stator 16mm ball joints there was plenty of meat on the lowers for it to be completly safe. have been using this setup for over a year with no issues and have had some very hard landings. by both me and my son.
