  • Designed for Optimum Handling
  • Tested in Extreme Conditions
  • Eliminates Body Roll
  • Kit Includes Driver and Passenger Side Ball Joint
  • Fits 1994 to 2004 Mustangs
Designed For Optimum Handling. Steeda's X2 Ball Joint will greatly improve the suspension geometry on your lowered Mustang by raising the spindle relative to the pivot-point of the ball joint. This raises the roll center back into the correct range, resulting in reduced body roll, quicker steering response and improved overall front tire grip.

Tested In Extreme Conditions. The X2 ball joints are made in the USA to Steeda's strict specifications by a respected name-brand supplier to Ford, GM, and Chrysler. Except for their unique custom length, these ball joints are constructed from the the same OEM materials that have been extensively tested in Ford police cars and other heavy duty service vehicles, where they have far exceeded the durability of current production "stock" ball joints.

Eliminates Body Roll. The X2 ball joint was specifically designed to correct the front roll center geometry. The X2 ball joint features a longer shaft, to raise the spindle in relation to the ball joint pivot point. Springs spacers are included in the X2 kit to maintain the same ride height as the stock ball joint, but with an improved roll center height.

Application.  This set of two Steeda X2 ball joints are designed to fit the 1994 to 2004 Mustangs including V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, and SVT Cobra. They will also fit 1987-1993 Mustangs that have been converted to a 5 lug setup using 1994-2004 5 lug spindles and brakes.

Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

Technical Note: These Steeda ball joints do not fit stock 4 lug 1987-1993 Mustang brakes because of interference between the rotor and the repositioned control arm.

Fitment: 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 Details

steeda x2 on 96 GT

I installed these after lowering my GT. They fit perfectly and are a must for lowered mustangs to correct suspension geometry. My steering feels so much better with them

Paired with a set of caster/camber plates, these ball joints bring your tires up where they need to be. They have helped me reduce tire wear and turning. I have a the Ford C-springs.

Are spacers included? My 04 GT is already lowered 1.75-2" in the front and if it lowers anymore I will run it into the ground. I am replacing the shocks/struts, camber plates, and a bumpsteer kit. I just want to know if I get these, will they have spacers so it does not lower it anymore and if I even need these. Thanks guys!

Samuel Year: 2004 Model: GT

  • Metal spacers are included to compensate for the additional drop to the a-arms which are not a bottoming concern in this application. They go up top of the spring. No noise has come from them in my car. I notice the same ride height I had before the ball joints were installed and had the same concerns as you. Given the mods you have, and what you plan to do, you need these to get the most out of the rest of them and retain proper suspension geometry. Do it right once.

Do these require alignment? I just bought these ball joints and lowering springs . After I install them do I need to get an alignment?

Bobbymach1 Year: 2004 Model: Mach 1

  • Yes, you will always need an alignment after springs or a major change like this.

will these ball joints work with a foxbody with sn95 spindles?

chrissssssss Year: 1989 Model: Other

  • yes, the SN95 chassis platform is the mustang years ranging from 94 to 04, some refer to the 99-04 mustangs as "new edge" mustangs but they are still typified as SN95 chassis. these should give you no problem in fitment.

    X-2 Balljoints -Lowering Mustang

    I installed the X2 balljoints in conjunction with a bumpsteer kit, caster/camber plates, and Ford Racing "B" springs, and shocks/struts. The extra 1/2" drop I wanted did work. The balljoints fit in place nicely. Because the V6 engine is a hundred pounds or so less than the V8, I wanted some additional lowering and these worked out perfect. With everything I mentioned in place, the car handles perfectly. Steeda provides a set of zern fittings that need to be installed on the bottom of them and the appropriate grease needs put in after installation is complete. I will try to post a picture of the stance I ended up with. Great product.

    A must have!!!

    I installed these ball joints along with the Steeda bump steer kit. The ball joints will lower the front of the car about 1/2" unless you want to use the spacers. Car handles better and has zero bump steer after installing with the bump steer kit. I would recommend these to anyone with a lowered Mustang.

    Awesome product! Took a few hours to install only because I had to beat the stock ball joints out with a hammer. Coupled with H&R springs, Tokico struts and shocks, these lowered my stang a little more and improved ride quality. A must buy

    X2 Ball Joint Failure

    I have had two of the X2 ball joints fail in less than 10k miles. I like the product, just wish it was as rugged as the ball joints that came from Ford.

    pretty much a pain to install and i work at a shop. the old bushings are hell to get out and the press tool is hard to use on this style of balljoint(obviously not a flaw in this product itself though) once installed it makes a very noticable difference. handled much better and tighter. gets rid of the multiple steering points and makes it handle so much better. must have for lowered cars

    Installed these ball joints along with H&R sport springs on my '01 V6. Left the spacers out and it dropped the front about a half an inch lower than the rear. Love that stance! Good thing I bought these, too. My old stock ball joints were falling apart. And thanks to AM for fast shipment!

    Grease these bad boys and then grease them again!

    Once these were in and greased I had the most awful popping noise in the front end. It took me hours to figure out where this terrible noise came from since I had just put in new shocks/struts, springs bupsteer kit, CC plates, and X's at the same time. I checked the torque on all bolts and everything was good; turned out it was the balljoints when I put it on a shaker machine I ended up spending an afternoon lubricating these balljoints by driving turning really hard and filling the joints up with new grease to get these things to lubricate. Now, once they did lubricate they were quiet as can be and helped out the front end handling. Great product, just a pain to lubricate. I will be greasing these things every oil change.

    Great serviceable balljoints

    Lowered my car about an inch without using the spacers. In addition you can grease these balljoints which is a great feature. I took my a arms off and pressed them in at a shop. My only complaint is that I needed an air compressor/impact gun to put the nut on, the shaft of the balljoint spun like crazy when trying to torque it with just a ratchet/torque wrench. Just be aware of this and have access to one.
