Hi,

I have a 96 Fleetwood I want to put control arms on. It has 5 on 5 lug pattern. Does anyone know if this correlates to 5/8 ball joints, or do they have or could they have 9/16?
I may just get arms with larger 5/8 lower joints and have the knuckles reamed for the larger if they are 9/16 in it. I have the failed right side which has torn up the right front tire. The left front seems ok, but I will do both.

Also, I warped at least one of the rotors... anyone know of a brake upgrade while still being able to keep 15' wheels? I am not so much looking for better braking up front, though I will take it if it comes, just looking for better durability in general. Any particularly good rotors out there maybe slightly thicker friction surface in the same diameter or known highest quality? Thanks
