    Performance ball joints and rod ends?

    I have a 2009 WRX and may have to replace those and would like to know if there are performance type. The only kit I've seen is Whiteline's, but it's for a lowered vehicle, mine is normal.

    Since you're talking about OEM try subarugenuineparts.com
    08WRX, TP Stage2, "Thou shalt not go stage 2 if thou hasn't installedeth a downpipe, unless thy wantest a checketh engine light. Lo, thou who installedeth a downpipe and has not tunedeth to stage 2 shall face thine engine's wrath, for thy dash shall become illuminated and proclaim "Hark, thou hast slain me", so sayeth the ECU."

    Does that mean there are no performance ball joints and rod ends?

    I've heard quite a few issues with the Whiteline kit. I've even been recommended OEM over the "performance" ones due to failure by a couple different shops.

    Hmmm...

    Widening the search, I'm looking at the offerings from common places. Two brands seem consistent, Proforged and Mevotech; any comments on those?
