Introduced to the market in 2009, and fitted to hundreds of Caterhams,
this is a updated and improved version of the original joints made back
WHAT DO THEY DO?
For less than the cost of a set of front tyres, these joints will save you money on tyres if you drive on the road with a track setup!
If your tyres wear on the inside edges, its because you have camber settings optimised for track use.
These joints allow quick and precise camber changes to be made in under 2 minutes when you arrive in or leave the paddock, without the need or challenge of splitting the ball joint on the top wishbone.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
The joints have double the resolution of standard top balljoints allowing for more precise adjustment of camber in 0.125 degree steps. This is important in order to compensate accurately for all the minor geometric differences in a Caterham chassis from side to side.
Fitting is simple and takes around 15-20 minutes per side.
Using a Teflon®/Kevlar® material as a liner to keep dirt and debris out the Kevlar additionally serves to lubricate the precision ground, heat treated, hard chrome plated 52100 bearing steel ball. No ugly rubber boots are required to protect them so long as the fitting instructions are followed.The other components are plated EN8 high grade engineering steel.
The Teflon®/Kevlar® material injection moulded race won’t loosen with use like traditional PTFE (Teflon®) liners, increasing the usable life of these joints (most sold in 2009-2012 are still in use today, and if properly looked after will continue to look great for many years.
I've been around Caterhams as long as I can remember. With my father we've been on a journey to build cars that exceed the specification of any factory produced Caterham. This interest has become my career and having completed my time at Oxford Brookes University having achieved two degrees: Motorsport Engineering (1:1 GPA 4.0), Motorsport Technology (1:1 GPA 4.0 Hons). I am now sharing my time between running JWM and working as a professional race engineer in high level motorsport. My talents were also recognised by the University where I led their Formula Student team in the area of Vehicle Dynamics.
Got suspension questions? Advice is free!
My area of specialisation is suspension analysis, research and design, where I have worked with one of the most successful Caterham race teams, DPR Motorsport, as well as designing and refining my own products. I've recently built my own Caterham Sigma car which is equipped with full data logging in order to model the best settings for your car and be able to blueprint suspension settings on race cars. I am opening a workshop near Cadwell Park and Blyton Park in the autumn where I will offer these setups and services in a fully equipped workshop.
For products in my shop, I endeavour to keep all items in stock and offer next day delivery on my items in partnership with DPD.
As JWM is a small company, and at this time we do not charge VAT.
Please note if you are outside the UK and EU you can still buy some products from me, but the diversity in size and weight of some parts means I ask that you email me so I can calculate the best insured shipping rates.
