Enhanced Design

Application specific upgrades such as sintered metal bearings, corrosion-resistant surface treatment, forgings, and enhanced bushing designs, make Precision parts the best choice for aftermarket chassis parts.

Sintered Metal Bearings in Precision Ball Joints

Precision uses sintered metal bearing technology on our designs which adds a layer of support for fatigued suspensions. Metal-to-metal technology is used in Precision ball joints to provide extra endurance and durability to get more life out of chassis parts.

Knurled Housing

Precision’s Knurled Ball Joint Housing

Knurling is a series of ridges that bite into the suspension components they are installed into. Knurling provides a tighter grip between the connecting points, and helps to compensate for any distortion or any corrosion in the control arm or the knuckle when the Technician is installing the part. Knurling from Precision provides supplementary retention for aftermarket chassis repairs.

Larger Ball Joint Housing Flange on Precision Ball Joints

Technicians can install Precision ball joints with confidence knowing they are often built with thicker flanges. The added material increases the stiffness and strength of the flange to prevent deformation during installation, and allows for a wide range of installation tools to be used. For Precision, more material means more strength and durability.

Precision’s Circlip

The circlip provides supplementary retention to the knurled ball joint housing, securing it in place. Technicians can easily install the circlip with a set of snap ring pliers.

Self-Sealing Grease Relief

Self-Sealing Grease Relief on Precision

Precision's self-sealing grease relief is a one-way valve that lets excess grease out and prevents contamination from getting back into the ball joint. As Technicians pump fresh lubrication in at the grease fitting, it flushes out the ball joint without breaking the seal between the boot and the ball stud. The self-sealing grease relief is found on Precision’s ball joints.

Precision Forgings 

As OEMs continue the trend towards light weighting, Precision puts heavy duty materials back into the forgings, stampings and castings of control arms for increased durability through. Enhanced cross sections reduce flex, minimize loading on the ball joint and bushings, and prolong service life. Technicians can feel the difference with Precision's  control arms featuring enhanced cross sections.

Enhanced Bushing Design

Bushings play an important role in ride quality and are designed to reduce vehicle noise vibration and harshness (NVH). OEM’s frequently use voids to tune their performance which can make the bushing susceptible to tearing. Precision’s bushings are built with increased strength, durability and more material.

Oversized Sphere Diameter in Precision Ball Joints

For the Precision brand, Precision designs oversized application specific ball stud systems. This includes optimizing the sphere size relative to the housing diameter. Using more material is an integral part of Precision’s Solution Oriented Engineering process.

Labor Saving Design

For the Technician, Labor Saving Design means fewer parts to manage, easier installation, and increased efficiency. Precision parts are designed with the Technician in mind. Whether it’s extra components that make the installation job easier or tools that ensure that the job is completed correctly the first time. Your time is valuable, and Precision is a commitment to make your job easier.

Complete Control Arm Assemblies from Precision

Precision control arms will come with the ball joint, mounting bracket, bushings, spring perch, etc. pre-assembled on the control arm, where OEMs and the competition will sell the components individually. Customers count on Precision to “think like a technician” and provide complete solutions on control arm assemblies.‚Äč

Bimetallic Technology

Precision Engineers developed an innovative  solution for unitized aluminum control arms. Precision calls this “bimetallic technology”. It incorporates a unique method of integrating sintered metal bearings in an aluminum control arm. This solution provides the Technician with a control arm that’s greaseable with an extended service life for their customers.

Ball Joint

Precision’s Engineers are constantly developing new and innovative ways to increase ball joint service life.  Precision’s enhanced ball joint with metal on metal and greasable components,reduces stress , maintains proper internal alignment, improves performance and significantly extends the lifecycle of the part.
