heres a interesting subject ive got a 77 beta coupe the lower ball joints  was just doing today  in the restoration  and   noticed that the two i got from fleabay are wrong, almost same  but one holes out and the thread is too large .

dont buy fbj5068    listed by so many ebayers  , fiat on box  unless lancia beta changed size  of the ball joints on later years?

Hi

I too bought a ball joint which although it fits the lower woishbone ok, the length of the threaded section was too long and fouled on the driveshaft. Solution for me was to reduce the length of the threaded section.

been doing some research  the coupes and saloons etc hjad m12 x1.25 pictch  60mm tall  ball joints,  lancia montecarlos had m14 x1.5 pitch and they are alot taller , its posible you can make them  fit in the  hubs but you would have to ream it out  to suit  of course youll have stronger lower balls joints!
