Thank you. You have rated this product.

Produced by Bauer Limited Production these ISO 9001 certified extended lower ball joints give you easy access to additional negative camber. Increases your available camber by -2* to -3* allowing a Miata with stock ride height to achieve -.5* to -3* of camber!

The extended lower ball joints will not slip like offset bushings and give you additional coilover spring to wheel clearance. Fits all 1990-2005 Mazda Miatas.

Includes new nuts and cotter pins for installation. Price is per PAIR.

Installation NOTES:
The threads on the rear tab of this ball joint where it connects to the control arm matches the factory threads - which is Metric M12x1.5. However, if your car has had the ball joints replaced at a previous point in its life with auto parts store units, some of those had different threading and therefore came with their own hardware to match those threads. For those cases, you'll need to source either a factory bolt or get new hardware from any hardware store in that factory size. If you still have your original ball joints, your hardware will be compatible. In some cases, you may need to run a tap through this threaded tab to clean the threads of the corrosion-resistant coating if the bolt is having trouble threading in.

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.

Wanted to say thanks. The exhaust system fit perfectly, no drone at steady throttle, but a nice sound winding thru the gears. And it does sound a lot like my old Alfa. The Racing Beat lowering springs are just right. Appreciate the tech advice and the service.
