According to Affinia, Raybestos ball joints are designed to match the individual OE applications for the best possible steering control, ride quality and service life. Advanced Technology synthetic bearing designs hold tighter alignment tolerances for longer tire life, and the permanently attached polyurethane dust boots provide clean, consistent, long-lasting performance, the company says.

Raybestos tie rod ends specifically match the ball and socket design for built-in strength and lasting durability, the company says. High strength steel forgings provide maximum stability, safety and service life, according to Affinia.

Raybestos sway bar links use performance-enhancing, low-friction designs and are cold forged for superior strength and stability. The full ball stud maximizes performance surface area, Affinia notes. The company adds that the parts come with the "best parts and labor guarantee in the industry," allowing technicians to install the products with "100 percent confidence."
