Ok, well everyone says that you need to replace the lower ball joints when you switch over the 5-lug components from an S14 to an S13....That's all fine and good...but where did you buy your S14 ball joints from?!?!?! 2 Nissan parts departments say that they only come attached to the lower control arm....So what do I do? Who do I call....Thanks!!!

Napa should sell them, try that.

Like I said, I used my stock S13 ball joints and they still work. You just need to tighten them really well. PLUS, I dont have a lock-pin on mine.. eeeugh.

Eventually, I'll get the new ball joints.. but for now this is fine. They are held in with tons of pressure

I'm pretty sure that they are just S13 ball joints (since they're S13 arms). Maybe if you ask real nice, he could swap the ball joints in a set for you http://www.freshalloy.com/
