(2) 84-86 SVO Ball Joint Dust Boots
(2) Ball Joint Castle Nuts

How many times have you 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 beat up or incorrect? If your ball joints are still good, there is no need to buy new ones to fix the issues above!
This 1979-93 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.

Just a quick note to say what great people (Eddie Davis) are at Latemodel Restoration. I ordered and bought a set of Track Pack Wheels for my 2014 Mustang GT.Their prices and service is the BEST in the MUSTANG INDUSTRY, not only the price and service but the honesty. The wheels came thru with the wrong center caps one call to Eddie Davis corrected the situation in one phone call and the next day I had the center caps (FORD RACING) the correct ones no BS, they just did the Right Thing,whereas in this Day and Age you don't here that often. LATEMODEL RESTORATION is the only place for your Mustangs parts and equipment, trust me try them and you will see what I mean!!
