Hey Bill........The TI Titanium racing brand sets that Iv'e bought came with all the ballstuds for the entire car, (14) total..... At the time they were 17 at my local hobby shop for the whole set, haven't checked lately.......IMO they use much higher quality titanium than any of the lundsford products I've owned www.titaniumracing.com ..............
I will admit the the Ti stuff is pretty nice. I ran their ball studs on my TC3 and I have never had to replace one of them in over three seasons. The are stronger than the steel and much lighter. In my opinion, it would be worth it to bite the bullit once and buy them now cause you will never have to replace them (unless you loose them
I had the FT blue aluminum ones on my TC3 and they are very fragile, never had a problem with them breaking but they do bend very easily.
My 415 has aluminum ball studs on it and I have broken the steering knucle ball cups more than once. Luckily they brake in such a way that they can still be removed from the knuckle with a wrench...but since the ball remains in the cups, it's near impossible to remove and I have to replace the ball cup.
Just do what I try to do and not hit anything...the only problem is this plan is not as easy as I thought it would be
