Any time you alter the height of your ride, as you do when you install lowering springs (like Steeda Sport Springs) in your new 2011-14 Mustang, you upset the steering geometry. You can easily bring your front end back into spec with a set of Steeda X11 ball joints. Restore roll center geometry and lower you car's center of gravity.
Steeda bump-steer kit, is highly recommended to prevent bump-steer whenever caster-camber plates are used in combination with the X5 balljoint.
Steeda's X11 balljoints improves suspension geometry on lowered Mustangs by raising the spindle relative to the balljoint pivot-point. This raises the rollcenter back into the correct range for optimum handling, resulting in reduced body roll, quicker steering response and improved overall front tiregrip. Steeda's special balljoint reduces the need for oversize front swaybarsand allows the use of lower front spring rates, creating more grip overuneven pavement and better ride quality.
The X11 balljoint has a longer shaft, to raise the spindle relative to the balljoint pivot point. Spacers for the springs are included in the X5 kit to maintain the same ride height as a stock balljoint, but with a much improved roll center height. With the roll center restored to the proper height, smaller front swaybars and softer springs can be used. The result is a suspension that works for you to accommodate the small and large imperfections that are in any road or track, allowing the tires to stay planted on the ground where they belong.
The balljoints are made in the USA to Steeda's specifications by a respected name-brand supplier to Ford, GM and Daimler Chrysler. Except for their custom length, they are the same materials and construction that has been extensively tested in Panther applications, that is, police cars and other severe duty applications, where they have demonstrated durability that exceeds current production "regular" balljoints. They meet Ford's standards for friction, wear, and durability.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!!
