GTI 3rd party Ball joints

Recommended Posts

As we all know the GTI has different ball joints to a standard Lupo and all the 3rd party ones never fit because they just give you standard ones. Well I was on buycarparts just having a look and noticed these https://www.buycarparts.co.uk/rts/7883717 From the picture they looked like GTI ones so I figured for the price I'd just have a go and see, no harm done if they were the wrong ones...Well it arrived and they are identical to the GTI ball joints. Got a brand new VW one for comparison so here's a few pictures comparing them.  balljoint2.thumb.jpg.fbf8ee6289b166f9baa766bf3b5af9d9.jpgballjoint3.thumb.jpg.b34206ceed2c89d58fc2f54b9fcdda59.jpgballjoint4.thumb.jpg.4dddc06a4f3674cffd784a2d0a4be9ab.jpgballjoint5.thumb.jpg.3893c7fcaef009d7a28fdd5d07e27a0a.jpgballjoint1.thumb.jpg.3080408b8dba4692fdf3c1c7b7fb4327.jpg

Definitely handy seeing as the OEM one's are a pain in the arse to get hold of!

They’re much shorter, there is a build thread on here with a blue gti and it shows a lupo gti and a normal lupo one.
