So we all know that the JZX90/100 can utilize the lower balljoint and steering arm from the Is300 chassis, and most of us know that the upper control arm does NOT swap, because the IS300 one is longer, leading to large positive camber problems.

 

 

My question, is has anyone used ONLY the ball joint from an Is300 to be pressed into a JZX arm? Until recently, only the entire arm has been available as a replacement option. Now manufacturers have started making replaceable individual balljoints for the IS300. 

Has anyone verified fitment? The balljoint taper should be identical, but what about shoulder diameter? Overall length? etc.

They fit
I fitted is300 adjustable camber arms into my jzx90
There's various bits that aren't quite right but the ball joint isn't one of them.

So i pressed the old balljoints out of the upper control arms and pressed in IS300 ones and they fit just fine. How come no one else seems to have done this? This is much cheaper than buying the entire arm.. Photos to follow.

Yep! Same balljoints I used in my 90 arms! I couldnt seem to find any info on anyone else who has done this, and wouldnt take no for an answer! We need to spread the word! haha.

 

 

The only issues I found were: I needed sand the paint off both the arm and the shoulder of the balljoint as it was too tight to press in, and that the castleated nut that was provided was too short to work properly with the cotter pin. I re-used the OEM hardware and all worked splendid!

 

 

Also I used IS300 lower balljoints and found that the diameter of them was larger than the OEM JZX90 units, and required me to use my RCAs for them to fit properly. Without installing the RCAs, the balljoint would not sit flat on the hub.
