Ball Joint Resto Kit
If you have gone to install a set of springs & you realize that your ball joint dust boot is trashed, the cotter pins are broken, & the nut is beaten up or incorrect, then this Ball Joint Resto Kit is the perfect remedy for you! Most of the time, the ball joints are still good! There is no need to buy new ball joints to fix this issue.
This 1979-1993 Mustang Ball Joint Resto Kit includes all the needed new hardware to reassemble the control arm to the spindle. The black urethane dust boots will keep your ball joint free of road debris & water. The castle nuts are zinc coated for corrosion resistance & the cotter pins are the correct diameter & length for Fox Mustang ball joints.
New ball joints include new hardware, so this kit is only needed if you are re-using your existing balljoints.
My ball joints in my '86 checked out ok, after upgrading to firmer springs the factory boot tore (using the fork type separator isn't the greatest way to separate the spindle and ball joint...). Since the existing boots were probably 10+ years old I figured it's cheap insurance vs the cost of risking ball joint failure due to torn boots + contamination. Installation is super easy. The new boot fits well over the existing ball joint, and they are definitely good quality. Make sure you have plenty of new clean grease before you install the boot and re-torque the lower spindle nut.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I bought this kit simply for the fact I needed the new castle nuts. But it turns out this kit fits on the ball joints from the sn96 control arms I purchased. I would recommend the purchase of this kit if you upgrade the a arms. The didn't mention this on the product page but these covers are important.

As a deployed service member, there are not many avenues of contacting companies back home conveniently. Between the time difference and use of wifi or morale phones, it can be challenging. Luckily the team at LateModel Restoration emailed me back quickly and gave me everything that I needed for a smoothe purchase, and a few more that followed. They were quick in reply and quick to help me out and I have my parts on the way to my home now because of it. I will be shopping here primarily and I recommend it highly to fellow Mustang folks.
