    Possible inner ball joint source

    https://www.alibaba.com/product-deta...627fHTvANH&s=p

    I've contacted them, haven't heard back yet. But these look like IX inners right?

    $9.99? Are they made of plastic? :(

    Quality is likely questionable - but the Q&A says they will send out samples?

      They're probably crap but I'm going to see if I can get my hands on one. If anything they might be able to get some people buy until better ones become available...

        For $10/piece I'd buy 10. That's cheap enough to risk it even if you just need 2.

          So, just an update--after going round and round with the source on Alibaba they readied a sample for me. They sent a picture of a RWD ball joint. So I asked if they had any of the ball joints pictured in the listing (clearly an IX balljoint) and they replied that they did not.

          I am going to start looking into a custom solution because I am in need of 4. Between both of my ix's they are all starting to make noise...

            s the lenght the same on both? Is it just the cone that is different?
            Would it be possible to make an adaptor piece/cone ?

              They are completely different. Length, size and shape.

                I wonder if it's possible to ship them one so they can replicate it.

                    I know it's a ton more money, but do the OE wishbone/lower control arms come with rubber bits (31121701059/31121701060).

                    And apologies for a stupid question, but what is the other rubber bit there? (inner ball joint? It's much taller and has a boot similar to the axle boots)
