Question on how to adjust upper ball joints.

First of all I want to say thanks to Tyler and everyone at superatv for great products and super fast shipping! I just received the 1.5in offset aarms and was wondering how I know where to adjust the upper ball joints. Is there a certain measurement that I need to do to angle the spindles? Thanks again, Preston

What do you mean by adjusting the ball joint? It just slides right into the spindle.

Re: Question on how to adjust upper ball joints.

Um, yes there is. Otherwise there wouldn't be a ball joint that threads in to the upper a arm and has a locknut. The stock aarms don't have any adjustments but these arms do.

Re: Question on how to adjust upper ball joints.

he has the superatv kit, they have a heim for a ball joint(with adjustment)
most likely it's already pretty close, put it all together and eyeball it.. the biggest thing is that their both the same.

Re: Question on how to adjust upper ball joints.

So I am assuming you have the +6 kit? The +5 kit that has the 1.5" offset does not have heims, but the +6 kit does. Adjusting that heim is all in how you have the other heims adjusted as well. The easiest way to adjust it is to play around with it with by placing a angle finder on the brake rotor.

Re: Question on how to adjust upper ball joints.

No problem. I have the 1.5 or 2 in forward offset standard 50" aarms.

I just received my set...on the upper heims what angle am I looking for??? 90??? does it matter if I run radials or not, set them both the same regardless I assume. You should update the instructions...mine says 2" forward when I thought I ordered 1.5" and to reuse the lower ball joints. Besides that the quality looks great. Frank D
