Put on some forged Mazda RX8 wheels. I was worried cause it listed the Offset as +50 but they look pretty good without spacers.

$300 is a rip off for a new balljoint if it's the lower one. MOOG is only $35 at Amazon + 1 hour labor to install. A shop quoted me $300 to replace both and do an alignment.

^ It was the dealer, so an alignment and a single lower ball joint would have been $450 with taxes. I almost had them do it just to get it done and over with until i realized that i could get it done for so much cheaper
