Just asking to make sure before I buy them and if they will rub.. I can get a new set of winter tires for cheap but they are 235/65/17 ... I use to run 60s in winter and 65 aren't that much taller maybe an inch total but I need to make sure thanks
(facepalm) And when you need to take that apart to do a repair... ???
No... the upper ball joint is non-serviceable. However, by cutting the hex off the stud... that may make replacing that control arm a challenge the next time it needs replaced.
Thst hex is used to keep the stud from spinning when removing the nut.
Maybe read up on what the tire specs mean before calling other responses stupid? The profile/series number (45, 50, 65, etc) doesn't mean anything on its own. All stock LS tire sizes are within 2% of each other's overall diameter. Your 235/65/r17 is 10% bigger than the OE size but my 285/35/r18 is the same diameter as stock. Figure that one outHaha as stupid as my question lol but for the speedometer and tire size the 3 versions of the ls has alot of diff size 55 50 60 16 or 17 but i use gps for speed. I wanted to be 100% i dont rub on bumps but with some searching I just saw some people run with 20 inch wheels with 45s so It should be ok I guess
I shouldnt of asked lol cheers
