Default Made my own CNC offset lower ball joints

A while ago I figured out I really needed more front camber for my STR s2k. I did a lot of research and couldn't really find any commercially available offset lower ball joints that were street touring legal. They all were roll center "correcting" in addition to being offset for camber. There were some that didn't explicitly say they were camber only so I ended up buying a set (I think they were EVS but I don't really remember). Turns out they were also illegal. So I finally got around to building my own. They should end up maxed around 3.5 degrees. They're also made of 15-5 PH stainless steel so I can leave them raw and shiny

Thanks guys! I forgot to mention that these also reuse the actual high quality oem ball joints instead of the mystery chinesium joints that are used by all the aftermarket units.

There might be. I got tired of researching the stupid things and their very unspecific marketing.

I highly doubt anybody would be willing to buy these were they available. The price would be astronomical. They take three to four hours to machine for the pair. I could make it much faster but I would likely lose much of that super shine. Plus how many people would want to spend that kind of coin and still have to press out their factory joints and press them back into the new ones?

In my searching I never found one that wasn't roll center correcting. Awesome job!
