Introducing the GoWesty Heavy Duty Lower Ball Joint (LBJ). All-steel construction, fully adjustable and greaseable. These will be the last lower ball joints you will ever have to purchase!

All 1980-91 Vanagon models. 2WD & 4WD.

Sold Individually. Two required per vehicle.

Replacing an LBJ on a 2WD or 4WD Vanagon is very labor intensive. It requires disassembly of pretty much the entire front suspension. It is so costly on the labor-side that you do not want to pay a mechanic $150+/hr to do it again… and again.

That is the problem with all the other ball joints on the market: hit one decent-sized pothole and clunk clunk clunk goes your suspension. The relatively soft cap and malleable plastic internal parts can only take one good hit—and that’s it. It probably won’t completely fail (although that can happen, too), but the noise that ensues is maddening. That's why we came up with the GoWesty all-steel lower ball joint.

There is nothing soft or malleable about this ball joint. It can take hit after hit after hit without a whisper of a clunk. Tried and true over thousands of miles running the NORRA Mexican 1000, these LBJs are virtually indestructible—and when they develop a small amount of play, they can be easily adjusted back to snug and quiet.  

Plus, these ball joints are greaseable, too. Good times, indeed!
