Ball Joint Delete

869 20
I'm coming up on my third set of ball joints and was wondering if anyone has ever seen or used Ball Joint Deletes?

The EMF are 4140 billet
There are lots of stronger and affordable alternatives when it comes to material and all 4140 is cr-mo more or less and billet means nothing just that it was machined out of a bar or block which is obvious…

Really they should be using 8620 that would make them basically last forever as far as wear is concerned and the cost is similar to 4140

Machining is too costly. The EMFs already last forever if maintained and not using some retard firepit rims. I understand what billet is. EMF chose the materials they did to provide a premium product at a reasonable price.
EMFs are machined…. Its not costly at all when running them on a CNC with what the cost if the EMFs are even after machining they would have a HUGE profit margin
