Not only just your view, its the only way it will correctly work. ALWAYS match the balljoint to the knuckle you are using. I think i posted this before but the mesasurements are different, as well as the taper.

The gold colored joint is for aluminum spindles/arms. The gray is j-body. :


Notice how the J-body joint has a slight taper and then straightens out, whereas the N-body joint is a bigger, continuous taper.



The N-body joint is also physically longer.



The N-body joint is a tiny bit smaller at the beginning of the taper compared to the J-body joint.



The J-body joint straightens out and is significantly smaller than the N-body joint at the end of the taper.

No problem. I could have swore that I posted these pix in the NWF thread. Maybe not though.

Nothing to do with this question, though. The NFW ball joint issue has been discussed plenty of times in those threads.

The J-body knuckle requires the J-body ball joint. No more complicated than that.
