Rear Lower Ball Joints

Ok, so I need lower rear ball joints on both sides and I hear I will most likely have to buy the whole knuckle for each... which is f**kin retarded. Anyway, I read that you can buy just the ball joint for the front lower of the SH which works in the rear of the Base. (Which I have btw... '97). Can anyone confirm this? If so, this link is what I want to order, no?

Re: Rear Lower Ball Joints

I actually ordered some from that site a few days ago. Perfect since I'm in Canada. Cheap too. Got a place nearby I can get them pressed in/out if I have too. Beats the hell out of paying 300+ for each knuckle.

So anyone in a similar situation... don't waste your money.

I know this is a little off subject. But what is the difference between the base prelude and SH upper ball joints. And or they not interchangeable?

Re: Rear Lower Ball Joints

Yes mines is the 5th generation. i ordered this
4 FRONT Upper Lower Ball Joint HONDA PRELUDE SH 97-01 : eBay Motors (item 230411411496 end time Mar-12-10 01:16:39 PST)

Apparently the Base model and the SH model uses different ball joints. Because the have different part numbers. But i cannot visually tell the difference at least form the pictures. Does any ones know what the physical difference is. And is its to much of a difference to were there not interchangeable?
