    Is it better to get the control arm camber kit or just the ball joint? Searched around but no luck. Thnx

    Regarding the front camber kit
    Both will do the same thing.
    Both will possibly hit and cause a noise if you're using them while being too low.

    The arm one might be easier to install if you're doing it yourself.
    The balljoint one will require you to hammer out or press out the old balljoint and insert the new one. Sometimes when doing this yourself you might make the hole larger and possibly sacrifice the integrity of the balljoint to control arm linkage.

    A camber kit on the front is really not usually needed.


    If you are reffering to the rear camber kit. Both do the same thing and are pretty similar, just different mounting locations and arms they replace. just go with your preference after you have researched both.

    Are you looking for the front or rear?

    You could drive with that and be fine, nevertheless the choice is up to you. The ingalls would make a great kit.
