Rid Yourself of Press-In Ball Joint Headaches with American Iron Off-Road Ball Joint Delete Kits from Summit Racing Equipment

Motortopia Staff April 02, 2024 Press Release Motortopia Staff

If there’s one thing that gives heavy-duty truck and Jeep owners cold sweats at night, it’s constantly replacing worn-out ball joints. Ball joints fail quickly on lifted and heavy rigs—especially ones equipped with bigger tires or subjected to heavy off-road use.

American Iron Off-Road Ball Joint Delete Kits solve that problem. They feature a 4140 chromoly heat-treated stud that passes through a tapered machined steel cup containing a spherical rod bearing. This design eliminates the play and wear-prone attributes of a ball joint’s tapered ball-in-socket system while greatly increasing strength, reliability, and durability.

American Iron Off-Road Ball Joint Delete Kits install just like OEM ball joints and can be completely rebuilt while still mounted on the vehicle.

Old School Ball Joint Delete Kit

The Old School Ball Joint Delete Kit is for classic straight axle Jeeps and trucks. The studs are installed into their corresponding tapers on the inner C-hub mounts. The cup assemblies are pressed into the outer knuckle, and the outer knuckle then slides upward onto the studs and are retained using the included Nyloc nuts. The Old School Ball Joint Delete Kit fits the following vehicles:

• 1969-91 Chevy/GMC K5 Blazer/Jimmy
• 1967-90 Chevy/GMC K10-25 pickup and Suburban
• 1971-93 Dodge W100-W250
• 1966-80 International Harvester Scout and Scout II
• 1966-79 Ford Bronco, F150, and F250
• 1971-91 Jeep CJ/Wrangler, J10/J20 pickup, and SJ Cherokee/Wagoneer

Gen 2 Ball Joint Delete Kit for Jeep

The Gen 2 Ball Joint Delete Kit for Jeeps is a high clearance system that features a lower cup machined with a recessed flat for increased room, so it works on everything from OEM-style to larger diameter RCV axle setups. The double-ended upper stud design allows alignments on bent or twisted axle housings. You can also increase or decrease steering firmness by adjusting torque values on the upper and lower joints’ mounting nuts.

The American Iron Off-Road Gen 2 Ball Joint Delete Kit for Jeeps fits 1990-2001 Cherokee and all 1990-2017 Wranglers.

Ball Joint Delete Kits for 2004-22 Dodge/Ram 2500/3500

American Iron Off-Road Ball Joint Delete Kits for Dodge will help stop the endless ball joint replacement cycle and fix the quirky steering characteristics of these vehicles permanently. The kits eliminate the factory upper and lower joint misalignments so that the steering knuckles rotate on the same axis. Features include:

• Custom machined press-fit upper and lower cups
• PTFE-lined 7/8-inch spherical bearings for smooth operation
• 3D-printed plastic dust cap and Viton® seal heads to keep out dirt and debris
• Open bottom to allow any moisture to evacuate from joint
• 4140 heat-treated hardware with Grade 8 Nyloc nuts
• .008-inch oversized cups available for axles with enlarged inner C-mount holes caused by numerous ball joint replacements
• Includes standard and 3-degree offset cups

These American Iron Off-Road Ball Joint Delete Kits fit 2004-10 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 and 2011-22 RAM 2500/3500 pickups.
