I was wondering if the RCA Ball Joints from Hardrace will have clearance issues with the factory 02-04 Type S 16s? I don't want to install them and find out that the control arm will be rubbing the inside of my wheel. Anyone have this setup?

I went home and put them on last night and there is tons of room. I have 17"s but there is more than 2.5" of room from the wheel to the threads of the ball joint and was a super easy install with a bench vise. I'm waiting on other parts so I can't drive it yet but will keep you posted

Just got it together but it's been raining like crazy and being boosted sucks when it's wet out. I'll let everyone know hopefully this weekend

Here's mine. They feel much better.
I didn't get those because I hear not having that retaining clip to hold it in that it will press it's self back out and the hardrace ones have a retaining clip. Keep me updated if it happens to you

Stock don't have retaining clips either. I guess that clip is piece of mind. I got the sponsor to hook me up with this set so for the price I'm willing to give em a shot. I'll keep the post updated.
