Ball joint replacement on Laeger a arms
« on: August 01, 2017, 08:27:22 am »
Does anyone know which ball joints the Laeger a arms use?  I've heard they use old VW Bettle ball joints, but am not sure.  Can anyone confirm or let me know?

I've sent them an email, but haven't heard back from them.  I know the part# for the top ball joints, but not the lower.

Laeger got back with me.  The guy told me the lower ball joints are OEM, but he didn't even tell me about the uppers.  Just that they don't stock them.  Seems like some shitty customer service for how much their stuff costs.

I know for a fact the lower arms are the stock with the bolt that goes thru thw back side.. the tops can be a number of different ball joints but the easiest route is some vw beetle bug outter tie rods from the local automotive store

That's what I found out.  The uppers are from an old VW Bettle and the lowers are stock.  I ordered new lowers, but found out I can't use them for what I'm doing.  I'm putting 400ex spindles and hubs on my 250.  I should have ordered 400ex lower ball joints.  The uppers that I ordered, I was sent left-handed threaded ball joints by mistake.  Got 4 new ball joints and can't use a one of them lol.

Oh yep i see what your sayin.. idk if the lower 400ex ball joint is the right outside diameter to fit in the lower ball joint tube.. most are 14mm or 16mm.. idk what route you can go to get that to fit properly..
