Very pleased to introduce our new Alloy USA Heavy Duty Dana 30-44 Ball Joint kit..
Here is the marketing part...

You know that the factory ball joints are just fine for the factory set up, but who drives around in a factory stock Jeep anymore? When you are adding larger tires and therefore more stress on the components, the stock ball joints tend to fail prematurely. The Alloy USA heavy duty ball joints were designed for vehicles with lift kits and larger then factory tires to eliminate the stock weak points and make improvements that will help the off-road enthusiast. No nylon inserts to wear out.
■Alloy USA – 5 year limited warranty
■Fits 07-13 Jeep Wranglers
■Fits 99-04 Jeep Grand Cherokees
■Made from SEA 4120 and 4140 heat treated high grade steel
■Grease fittings (not found on factory application) allow for continued maintenance
■Ball joints can be greased after installation
■Complete set of 4 pieces, 2 upper & 2 lower ball joints

The Alloy USA heavy duty ball joints have been designed with a low profile (grease) zerk fitting for regular maintenance, a feature not offered on factory replacement parts. The plastic inner insert has been replaced with a high strength steel socket system. This design greatly increases ball joint strength and durability. This is a “Must” for lifted vehicles running any tire larger than stock applications. Ball and socket are assembled using an exclusive threaded preload system to ensure precise tolerances for prolonged joint life and precise steering. The ball and shaft are constructed from industry leading SAE 4140 Chromoly steel. Alloy USA ball joints are industry leaders for durability and strength


If you got questions let me know!! MSRP is set at $199 for a complete set of (4)...

I'm actually in the market now for well-priced aftermarket replacements for my 100k mile worn-out OEM ball joints! I like the construction of the Alloy joints and I like the 5 year warranty too. Why "new and improved" in the marketing literature? What has changed and why?

This may be a stupid question but looking at the design it appears that they are rebuildable without removing from the vehicle? Is this correct or are they a one time shot till they fail?

Will they work with RCV CV's/shafts and is it possible to to grease them with the CV's in place?

Nick
GREAT QUESTION! I assume the angled position of the lower grease fitting accommodates RCV axles, but I want to know for sure as well.

I helped a buddy install a set over the weekend and I don't see why they wouldn't Work with RCV's They have an angled lower needle fitting just like my Poly's that work fine with my RCV's.

In all honesty after holding them in my own hands and inspecting them they look like a quality product. Now only time will tell how they perform.

I would like to know how the 5 year limited warranty works as I feel I just got burned warranty wise on a set of Alloy shafts that have a couple wheeling trips on them and the flanges are bent already so I'm buying my second set of axles in 6 months.

Seems like a good product. Also interested about compatibility with RCV's, and also what exactly the 5 year limited warranty entails.

Not a stupid question at all.... Was expecting it.
The answer is no although it looks possible. The design allows us to control preload during assemble. The tapered threads have thread lock applied and the top of the ball joints are bradded at four points.

As for failure.., should take a good bit of time... :)

RCV axles are a good question and I will be 100% honest..... Do not have the RCV axles to test. I did get measurements and did my best to keep the fitting and crown as low as possible for this reason..

Who wants to be a tester for free? :cwm13: PM me.

The 5 year warranty is for manufactured defects but we will stand behind the product as long as they are installed correctly and properly maintained. Just like the other manufactures state.

I don't know how things work around here since JKO was sold, but how come Pig has a nifty yellow star? Is Rugged_Ridge going to copy that too?
