Thanks for the info.
This is a street car. What kind of issues could going to a full mono ball setup cause? My spindles are not too rare, they are used on fwd celicas as well, but I put a fair amount of money into them converting them to 5x114 bolt pattern, so I don't want to ruin them.
I think this is the type used in the image I put above. http://www.colemanracing.com/Stud-M...P3687.aspx
I want this car to be reliable on the street and on the track, so I want to do this right. I don't mind going to american measurements, I just have to get the hole reamed to match. I was hoping the civic ones might fit, but my concern with that is my car is heavier by at least 400lbs due to awd and cast iron block and I am not sure they are designed to handle that sort of weight.
I had an idea of getting a rod extension made that would thread onto an oem ball joint and then be tightened to the spindle, but I am not sure if that is structurally sound.
They make something like that for vw, but its a different style. http://www.srtforums.com/forums/f16...er-615278/
I wish there was a way to have my ball joint rebuilt with a longer stud.
