We are now replacing the Standard Rubber Boots on our A-Frame Ball Joints with our UPGRADED polyurethane POLY BOOTS, GL1174, we are doing this during assembly here as they are not as easy to change later once fitted on a vehicle.
A common problem with Rubber Boots these days is perishing/cracking, Rubber doesn’t seem to be what it used to be.
Polyurethane will not perish/crack like normal Rubber so will give a much longer service life.
This is an Adjustable & Greaseable A-Frame Ball Joint ready pressed into the housing to make it much easier for you to fit to your Land Rover, A frame joints can be very difficult to get out of the old housing and just as difficult to press the new one in, this is why we have done this ready assembled in the housing and it also comes with the 2 bolts and nuts to fasten it to your A frame arms.
This A-Frame Ball Joint can be adjusted if you do find you get play in it.
To adjust, tighten the 19mm adjuster nut 1/4 turn at a time until the play has gone and knock over the lock tabs once done.
It also can be greased and the grease will also stop the adjuster nut seizing up which is commonly known with adjustable joints, they also give 45 Degree of movement, more movement than many other joints on the market.
