TBH I wouldnt DARE drive round with 6 a-side ball-joints, they are a CRITICAL stress point in the sus that I wouldnt scrimp on, specially with higher poundage springs. You break a ball joint and its wheel under the car and NO control time...

Dunno, i'll have to look in my book but I get 20% OFF trade club prices till Crimbo so prob about 50/60% off RRP...
