Re: Lower A-arm balljoint
I don't have my XL yet so I have no way of checking.
But...Is that an Allen bolt in that first picture?
If it is, I would ditch that & put in a grade 8, or grade 12 if metric, regular bolt & a thick, large diameter retainer plate.
A a spacer on the high miss alignment might be necessary if travel is limited by the washer.
That way if it does pull through, the washer will keep the arm connected to the upright.
It will rattle like hell, but the front end will stay together.
Inspections are also quick in the pits, if the washer is hitting the arm, you've got problems.
Just a thought...
