I bought good ones from Jason at Alfissimo a couple of years ago.

Centerline is about the same price as Classic Alfa and I suspect the delivery and tax will be a lot less.

You are in for some disappointments if you shop spare parts by price alone.

Alfaholics uses Frap. We have all heard the stories but hope they are wrong. I installed one of their suspension kits and all the ball joints were Frap. Certainly was not an inexpensive endeavor.. n

I had a FRAP lower ball joints that lasted about 2 years, 15K miles. Some people say that they have improved. For me it makes no sense to save $10 on a suspect product. FRAP can be identified by the castellated nut. The good ones have a Nylock nut.

A couple more data points:

Classic Alfa supplies FRAP also, with castellated nut. They say they've sold 1000's without complaint of premature failure.

Alfissimo sell ETS brand lower ball joints, but are out of stock right at the moment, with a quoted 1-2 week lead time. (Hopefully the parts aren't stuck in Italy behind quarantine lines . . .)
