    I want to relief some stress on the stock BJs, and looking for less expensive way other than going with the new UCA from TC, camburg, etc. Does anyone know if there's any vendor out there that makes 'Longer Ball Joint' ? Does MOOG makes any or do they just make standard length?

    Thanks,

    I have never heard of this. Wouldnt the ball joint still be stressed at the same angle? This is why the uniballs are great because they can rotate farther. And a longer one would increase the distance between your UCA and LCA, causing some geometry issues? Altho it probably not very far, just a thought. :(
