Hellurr,

welp, i just replaced my ball joint with a moog ball joint thinking that was the problem. come to find out it's the pinch bolt not staying tight. i've re-torqued the bolt a few time but it seems rattle itself loose. i replaced the bolt twice, still the same issue.
my question is, are the SVT knuckles threaded in any way?
why won't this darn thing stay torqued?
do i need a new knuckle?

thanks,
GLU.

i'll answer this myself, yes i do need a new knuckle. the hole where you insert the ball joint has been damaged therefore no matter how tight the pinch bolt is, it's not tight enough.
200 bones later, the problem is fixed.

Thanks for posting your solution. Too many times on these forums, the OP never reports back what the problem resolution was and nobody learns anything. That's worth a rep +1.
