    Hey guys, I have a question. I'm installing coilovers on the front of my car as well as tubular control arms. The arms are AJE and I bought them used. I just rebuilt my stock control arms a couple years ago and installed Steeda X2 balljoints. I was wondering if it's worth swapping out the balljoints to my tubular arms, or if they aren't needed with coilovers. I can't seem to find any answers online and I emailed Steeda and never got a response. Thanks!

    Per Steeda's website, the balljoints are designed to correct suspension geometry after lowering the vehicle.
    So, I would say that if you are still at a lowered ride height then it doesn't matter whether you are using standard springs or coilovers.

    They will be just as effective with CO's as they were with traditional springs.
