Dana Incorporated has introduced new Spicer Performance ball-joint kits for the Jeep Wrangler JK, Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT.
The first-to-market ball joints are designed with upgraded metal-to-metal construction for added strength and durability, according to the company.
“When Jeep owners upgrade to bigger tires and make modifications, such as adding body armor, rooftop tents or new bumpers, the heavier weight adds stress to the vehicle. This added weight can shorten the life of the axle and its components,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana. “Installing a Spicer Performance ball-joint kit when upgrading will reduce the chance of experiencing rapid oscillating in the steering components that results in a harsh shaking of the steering wheel.”
Spicer Performance ball-joint kits feature everything needed to service the front left or front right corner of a Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator model, according to the company. Each kit includes one upper and one lower ball joint, plus nuts and cotter pins. The results-driven design features a grease zerk to input fresh lubricant and purge contaminants, leading to extended life and allowing for serviceability.
“A heavy-duty upgrade to Spicer Performance ball joints will help ensure that Jeep owners get all the quality and performance they demand,” said Nunnery. “Because Spicer Performance ball joints provide increased resistance to stressors like deflection and deformation, they prevent uneven tire wear and extend part life.”
