Trust me man, it did not lower the front end at all, I’ll take a picture of the oem ball joints if you want. Front wheel gap is the same height as my rear on Swift springs.
Thanks, that's good to know. I guess I'll be picking up a set for myself.

How do you like them though? do you feel a difference ? what kind of springs are you running?


I just ordered a set mostly for track and i currently run swift spec R lowering springs.


Thanks!

im running swift r as well. good but if you want more out of those plates.. cut the perch about half a inch on the side facing the frame.. i will do that on my next alignment.. you can camber way more after that.. and those stock shocks.. lets be honest.. you arent selling stock suspensions, its for your personal use so cutting it isnt a big problem

Interesting. Heard some other reviews saying that it does affect the front height after installing the ball joints like how it does on a S2000, and DC2. Do you have any before and after photos of your front wheel gap? I'm on swift as well and am considering these ball joints but don't want the front of the car to be any lower than it is already.
the ball joints wont affect ride height like on a dc2 or s2000 due to the type r being a strut front end. on a strut front end the shock is hooked directly to the spindle/hub so changing the ball joint can only affect roll center/camber. A dc2 or s2k are double independent front suspension so the shock mounts to the arm so when changing the height of the balljoint it will affect the ride height because it moves the spindle/hub height etc.

here is my setup
stock shocks with eibach sport line
installed the hard race front lower camber balljoints/adjuster - set it at medium setting

can do -3 camber front - most likely can do -3.5 to -4.0 camber front on MAX setting

before alignment
