There are the dynatrac ones but I know a fabricator that used to work there and he told me that they have to recall some of them. I went with just uppers from carli and that was a monumental increase! It was awesome and well worth the dough.
Dynatrac shipped 10 sets back in November and then pulled them back in to do additional heat treating after the owner decided that he wasn't happy with the heat treat process. For the first time since late Novemeber, I actually have these back in stock.
The Carli lowers should be ready shortly. This will make me and my customers very happy.
i just wish Carlis were a bit more cost effective..... i understand what it takes to design R&D then re design and R&D then market and sell.... but just seems like alot of money.... I know they are by far the best i just dont see the cost in there....they were a custom design not a one off but still....
Having said that... i will likely get them when needed.....
I'm running the Carli uppers and the lowers are McQuay Norris which is what Sage recomended since the lowers were not out at the time. I have been impressed, they take a beating. The main issue is addressing the stress on the uppers, but in time I may swap the lowers for Carli as well. They are worth it, but are a hit to your wallet.
Im about to install the dynatracs today yippee. BTW dont feel to bad I can only get about 20000Km out of my ball joints. Hopefully this will be the last time I touch the balljoints.
2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega cab Laramie 5.9 L, 48 RE, 5" long arm lift, new T style steering, bilstein shocks, 35" BFG mud terrain KM2, steering brace, Dynatrac ball joints, pa brake, Smarty JR, New long block, turbo and injectors @ 143000 KM warranty
there 800 fo both... that isnt bad.. i havent looked at pricing but figured it would be double the uppers... arnt they $550? well yeah 800 is worth saving yourself the heart ache of having to swap them every 30-50k
Carli isnt charging so much to try and get rich off the sale of ball joints. There is a lot of cost for the quality of product they put out. Heck they are on their 4th testing version of the lowers and I think Sage is finally happy...although he always wants more performance and higher quality...its almost a sickness with that guy.
There has been such a HUGE demand for these ball joints that Carli was able to order more and get the cost per unit down. By doing so they can now lower their price and save the customer some $$$.
Carli's business model is to provide the highest level of performance with the highest quality parts while offering the highest level of customer service. Yes you pay a little more for it but like anything...you get what you pay for.
