I've had the Whiteline ball joints installed for a little over half a year now and made it through one NYC winter with a lot of snow and also through 2 track days and the slotted adjustments have not moved over time nor impact with NYC pothole ridden streets during and after the winter.
Good to know. Did you have to cut/mod anything to get them installed? Where they an upgrade in steering feel?

not the same product, but TT adjustable ball joints are also slotted and I've found them to be very stable when torqued properly.

that said yeah Whiteline seems a little precision lacking at times. The studs on their rear endlinks are excessively long (was also the case on a set for a previous BMW e90). Studs are too close the rear springs for oem springs.

Wait... Was the bolt issue not solved on these ball joints? Or are there other issues as well?

I'll need to read through the entire thread before I install mine.

No cutting or modding of anything required. I definitely noticed an improvement with bump steer when driving on the highway.

Does it rub at full lock? Meaning 100% turned right or left. That's usually where the issue is.

dam so.. read the thread. I have the superpro LCAs, whiteline roll center balls and im on kw clubsports. Next step was a BBK. Yall are sayin that, no matter which kit i go with, rotor and ball joint will rub if its any thicker than the 340mm stock rotor?
Any stock rotor/bigger sexier caliper setups out there?

I have seen one person with the Macan calipers on the Mk6r rotors (345x30mm) and whiteline roll center kit but that was on stock LCAs.

Correct. You’re front rotors will rub or tap the heat shield.
