Spindle & Ball Benefits

Shaft & Ball Benefits

MetalCloak "Baller" ball joint Spindle/Ball units are formed of solid Chromoly steel for durability and then are Induction Hardened for incredible surface strength that resists wear. The oversized bearing surface provides maximum area to distribute force loads from on and off-road use and abuse. The induction hardening provides unsurpassed longevity for smooth bearing operation. The Baller Joint Spindle/Ball composition is the best you can get to absorb energy without possibility of fracture while maintaining an ideal hardened bearing surface that ensures a long service life; it's quality you can count on.

Bearing Races

The Concave Bearing Races are high impact shock resistant machined and heat treated tool steel with maximum surface contact to spread force loads, this allows more pre-load relief while still resisting memory steer. Races are indexed to prevent rotation inside the ball joint housing.
