Keep your vehicle on the road longer with our X-Factor products.
For maximum durability, service life and performance, we engineer X-Factor upgrades that include bi-metallic technology, superior seals, larger ball studs and enhanced cross sections.
PWR-TEK DesignUpgrade to parts that can withstand extreme loading conditions with high-strength steel and larger bearings that are guaranteed not to deform.
Knurled HousingPrecision engineered ridges for tighter grip between connecting components.
Locking BootBoot design permanently fixes boot to housing and creates perfect seal, keeping out contaminants.
Quad Sealing SystemAdditional lips on boot sealing surfaces prevent contaminants from entering into the boot.
Increased Ball Stud DiameterIncreased sphere diameters improve contact pressure and durability of ball pin.
Larger/Thicker Housing FlangesProvides additional strength and stiffness to the ball joint. Reduces the likelihood of deformation of the ball joint housing during installation. Facilitates the use of a wider range of ball joint installation tools.
Upgraded Bushing DesignsBushings are upgraded with filled in voids and/or additional rubber to improve the durability of the bushing.
Enhanced Cross SectionsAdditional material is added to the part to improve body stiffness and strength.
Bi-Metallic Control ArmsExclusive patented (US no. 8757648) technology which allows for a ball joint featuring sintered metal bearings to be threaded into an unitized aluminum control arm.
Bushing Radial KnurlingBushing design with knurling on inner sleeve that assists to secure the bushing to the frame.
Greaseable Ball JointsBall Joint is serviceable allowing the user to continue to grease the ball joint improving the service life of the ball joint.
Sintered Metal BearingsBearings made of a durable sintered powder metal that leads to a longer lasting part.
Patented Snap-In BearingOversized sintered metal bearing with large contact area is engineered to accommodate challenges of a worn knuckle.
Self-Sealing Grease ReliefGrease relief that acts like a one-way valve allowing excess grease to flow out of the boot while preventing contaminants entering the boot.
REPEL-TEK CoatingsCorrosion resistant coatings that prevent the formation of rust for a longer part service life.
IntegribootBoot is mechanically locked in place by the housing lamination preventing contaminants from entering the boot.
Optimized Compression Control (OCC) DesignDesigned to prevent over-compression of bushings during installation which extends the service life of the bushing.
Patented Stepped BearingsEngineered bearings designed with a recess that prevent flattening of the Belleville spring washer which leads to an increased service life of the ball joint.
Anti-Corrosion CoatingsCorrosion resistant coatings that prevent the formation of rust for a longer part service life.
CirclipSecure the ball joint with the circlip included to provide supplementary retention for the ball joint housing, locking it into place.
Patented Directional BearingAllows for proper implementation of upper bearing on ball joints with larger swing angle in one direction. Addition of upper bearing provides additional contact area and greater pressure distribution for less wear.
Higher Grade HardwareHardware provided is made with a high grade and strength.
Premium GreaseBall Joint is provided with premium grease that leads to an improved ball joint life.
Ball Pin Surface HardeningBall Pins are surface hardened to prevent premature wear and improve fatigue life
Upgraded Spherical BushingBushings are upgraded from Rubber to Spherical Bushings.
Upgraded SealsGet a longer service life with upgraded seal material that provides an increased barrier to water and contaminants.
Roll Formed AssembliesIncreases rigidity and stiffness vs. interference fit design. Holds internal settings more consistently than the press fit design. Reduces load on components and associated part failure. Can limit potential damage and deformation arising from an over torque condition.
