Dinan Tension Strut Ball Joint Kit

For those running a the Dinan Tension Strut Ball Joint Kit or similar, do you have any tips for the install? Is an alignment necessary after the install?

Its fairly straight forward just follow the Dinan instructions. Yes id highly recommend an alignment afterwards-NEEDED is a strong term but I would do it.

I have M HAS and the Dinan rear toe links, thinking about getting this kit as well, would it increase NVH? Can somebody share their experience with this kit?

I have a similar setup from fall line and you’ll want to torque down the bolts at ride height not full droop...and the monoball setup I have is a bit louder and harsher over bumps and road imperfections but not horrible, they also click a bit when turning the wheels but the oem’s do this a bit as well, the solid ones are just a lil louder and do it more...definitely less front toe deflection at the limit of traction and under braking as the stock ones are made to toe in at the limit and absorb some shock over big bumps imo...good luck happy modding lol

You will need an alignment for sure. Make sure you follow the updated Dinan instructions, use Loctite !!!
