ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

i know these aren't a complete necessity but when you're running -2 and -3 degrees camber i figured i should shoot for a camber kit. these specific upper ball joints allow camber adjustment of +1.5 through +3 degrees and help significantly with tire wear (if you're slammed). installation was a bit tricky since you have to mutilate and press the old bj's out of the control arm, but once the old ones are out installation was a breeze. easy to adjust too (with a lift at least). downside would be the steep price, $105 per wheel. personally i paid around $78 per but still... camber is now at a healthy -.5 and -1.0 degrees. fits 92 on up preludes...

here's a closer look...35599 - Adjustable Ball Joint - Ingalls Engineering Co., Inc.

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

do you have the old or new version.. i had these ball joint camber kits and they got me my camber back but the only downside is they kept banging on the shock tower.

Ingalls and SPC are the way to go when working with camber..

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Damn, haha. How low are yo dropped?
And Im actually confused on something if you guys can help me, what's the difference from a "ball joint camber kit" and a regular "camber kit"?
My car is lowered on cut springs..fixing to get new coilovers, but just waiting to align until I have everything.
Help me out? Haha
thanks

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

i'm at the point where the tops of my tires are tucked but not enough to effect handling or hit the wells...3 inch drop maybe?

there are multiple camber correcting kits out there. i was about to purchase the ones where they reposition the upper control arm but ingalls recommended the ball joints (more expensive of course...) personally i like the ball joint camber kit because of the ease of adjustments and installation...haven't tried any others yet. to know if you truly need to correct negative camber is to know where they are at after you lower. such as my scenario i was at -2 front and -3 rear, enough to lose traction and tear up tires...

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

here's where i ordered mine Ingalls Camber Kits (universal fit for our specific control arms)

you have to ask for the specific part and they'll order it since they don't stock all of those things. my part number was 35599, so in other words i asked for 4 35599s and got the price quote...then installed! like i said i paid just under $80 per on my set of 4, so the total was around $320 plus a bit for shipping...

installing includes mutilating the old bj's for a nice hole to insert the new bj's. if you do install go ahead and ask for any help if needed...

aight cool cool, did you just adjust the balljoints yourself so it wont be as negative?
or could an alignment shop do that as well?

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

super easy to adjust yourself, but you won't know the readings until the alignment. with mine i adjusted the rear as positive as it could get, then left the front as negative as it could get (so it wouldn't hit the fender). it turned out being in spec so i don't know if the alignment shop touched it or if i magically knew where it should be...

Ahh I gotcha, but alignment shops will do everything though. Cause I hate messing up my car haha.
They should adjust the ball joints and the alignment together shouldn't they?

well, my "easy to do" may be different than others but it is way easier of an install if the upper control arms are removed from the car. since my back seats were out already the front and rear control arms came out easy, can't guarantee that for everyone though...

Hey, I just read this and I've got to tell people who are going to purchase these in the future that alignment shops will NOT automatically adjust your adjustable ball joints when you take the car in.

Most alignment shops are all computer-automated and all they have to do is either enter the VIN number or the make, model and year of the car to find out what needs to be done. Then the computer will take the measurements of the car's specs beforehand, then actually TELL the technician where to move what. The computers will know that the Prelude came with non-adjustable ball joints so even if it knows the ball joints are out of spec, the technician is not going to care and just leave it "as good as he can get it" Then he'll take the car off the lift, print out your spec sheet and give you the bill.

You have to TELL the technician before he starts that your car has adjustable ball joints and that you do want them adjusted BEFORE they start. Also, chances are high that the shop will charge you a little bit extra since it's an extra service (+extra time spent) to adjust them, but they will do it and it will be worth it.

Just thought you all would like to know!

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

^^^true fact, i told the shop of the new ball joints but they didn't touch them anyways. according to the print out camber was "in spec" from my eye adjustment to the ball joints...

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

No problem. One downside is if you're real low and hit a nasty dip the top nut that adjusts the camber will hit the inside of the shock tower. Only happened twice to me though so watch for nasty dips/potholes!!

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Hey, thanks for the quick reply, im currently weighing my options, between these Ingalls, Mevotech, and whatever else comes up worth looking at..
I like the Mevotech's, cause they're re-greasable (some of them)..
this site has some good looking stuff Mevotechpartsonline

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Are you looking for camber adjustability? The Ingall's offer positive camber adjustability while the Mevotech's you posted look to be fixed.

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Yes I will be requiring adjustability.. At some point i will slam that ish.. thats why i found these next.. that was just my first find..
these look delicious..
Mevotech Control arm and bushing pkg

do i NEED adj bj's, or can i just rely on the control arm links ? Mevotech camber adj control arm links - X3--Camber-Alignment-Kit---92-96-Honda-Prelude
but it all depends, if i can rely only on links for the right amount of camber, then ill do that and stay with a static bj. i dont want it looking stupid, function is paramount..
EDIT: oops, found these... ADJ BJ
They look pretty good.. just wanted the opinion of someone who competes with their car..
Ive been searching and reading 2 days str8... and im still not done, i really wanna knock this aspect out the park..

sorry... i know its alot at once, but its ALL floating around my head atm..

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

I was considering the adjustable UCA links at first being less expensive, but after contacting different companies they all lead me to the adjustable ball joints. Those complete UCAs look solid but the BJs appear fixed, so camber will not be adjustable. If you come across a complete UCA with adjustable BJs that would save you time and hassle of pressing the oem ones out. I haven't found a company that offers any yet which is why I stuck with Ingalls. Good luck

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Yes, that is what im trying to figure out..
Good info.

Thank you

EDIT : so the bj's hit your strut tower ? any noticeable damage in the engine bay strut tower ?
ill throw a patch of rubber in there, OR. Can I cut a tiny hole in the strut tower to let the piece stick through, or would water get in the engine bay and/or compromise the rigidity of the tower ?

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

It's just a minor dent in the wheel well and barely noticeable in the bay. I believe they make rubberized bump stops that fit in the wheel well where the uca may hit but they limit your shock travel. Only happened twice on very nasty dips so I don't think it's too big of an issue.

Sounds good, as long as paint wont peel and all that... I'll make that sacrifice.
Im compiling a hefty list of susp parts for review.
Thanks again'

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

One way to avoid the issue altogether is to not drop too low!! But it's hard not too...

If i get them I wont go for a 2.5 - 3 inch drop, but if I get 16 -15's like i had always planned, well then my friend, the ground is the limit...

Re: ingalls camber kit (upper ball joints)

Hey elude, whats up ? I finally got the upper control arms and now i need to decide on Ingalls or Eibach bj.
I've looked around in the service manuals and cant find what Im supposed to torque the control arm mounts to... I already know the 17's up top (those are clearly labelled in the manual) but I cant find the info for the 4 14mm bolts at the ends (highlighted in the picture). I was hoping u could shed light on if they need to be real tight or mounted at a specific angle.
