Looking for Right Side SVT Knuckle
 
Hello All,

I've been trying to figure out why I always had to change my BallJoint on the Right side of my SVT, and I realised that the knuckle was severely worn by the previous owner who dropped the car 1.5 inches down..

I'm no longer going for a BallJoint Change, but rather looking to replace the real culprit, the Knuckle (Spindle).

Anybody has a Right Side SVT Knuckle for sale here?

Thank you very much!!

Well, I've managed to overtorque the bolt that squeezes the ball joint with the knuckle to remove the noise, but I don't know how long it will last! How much would you sell yours?
Thanks for the reply!

Look for a a '05 only spindle & then use a '05 ball joint w/ your control arm. The '05's use the smaller strut mount diameter as yours, but ford went w/ a bigger tapered ball joint in the lower arms.

Yeah! I know this is an option...however I'd like to try to keep the brand new ball joint lol .. if anyone has a SVT knuckle, i can install it this winter, the car will be stored during winter anyway!

Just exchange it for a '05 one & grab a set of '05 spindle's.
