Carli Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Extreme Duty Ball Joints 2003-2013
Simply put, Carli ball joints are the best ball joint available for the Ram platform. Carli started from scratch for these joints by re-designing the known issues of the weak factory ball joints and they're so confident in the materials and design that they offer a lifetime warranty on these joints. That would be unheard of with the poor factory design! If you have an issue or out of spec play, Carli will send you new ball joints at zero cost.
The factory ball joins use a nylon wear surface, which just doesn't hold up to the heavy Cummins or Hemi engine engines especially with off road use. To fix that Carli uses a metal on metal design with proprietary coatings for almost unheard of wear characteristics. With proper greasing at each each oil change these 100% USA made joints will last the lifetime of your truck. If you have over sized tires, hard use conditions or just want the best of the best look no further!

These Carli Ball Joints are the real deal. What a difference they make in the overall handling and ride quality. I would highly recommend this upgrade. Easy to maintain plus you get the backing and support from CJC & Carli wifh makes the investment worthwhile. You end up with one heck of a ROI.
After an unsuccessful search to find an installer anywhere close to me, I made the pilgrimage from Reno to CJC. I could not be happier with the results. I had them install a Carli Pintop System, beefier coils, new wheels and 37” Nitto tires on my 2020 Ram Power Wagon with a Four Wheel Camper. They put their crew of expert installers to work on the rig as soon as I got there and were great hosts as I “hung out” while the job was done. They test drove the vehicle and made sure everything was tight and torqued to spec. It made it home without an issue including a bit of off roading. I will be taking it on a longer trip this weekend and I am looking forward to testing it out more.

Install was easy. Parts and instructions were high quality and they ride very nice.
Great product. All went really well
2010 ram 3500 dually. Hotshot truck. I do about 10,000 miles a month all over usa so if these joints aren't what they are suppose to be it will show fairly fast. I watched all the emf videos and installed them myself. Not a fun job but got them set and adjusted perfectly. Now onto other steering issues. Will be adjusting my 600,000 mile steering box today.
After dumping $1,000.00 into steering box, and stabilizer, and reading hundreds of forums, we can safely say that these ball joints solved our issue. I am just trying to "TRUST" my truck again! As many people know that after experiencing that shake driving down hwy. at 70-80 mph....it's pretty scary. I cannot believe that Dodge was that stupid, and we Dodge lovers have lost faith in this company! What a shame, that I will have to build that trust again. EMF Thank you for creating an AMERICAN MADE product that is worth every cent!
We got our alignment, and We are pleased so far so good. Excellent!

What makes EMF different than the other Rebuildable Ball Joints on the market?
As the years go by and miles are put on the truck and normal wear and tear happen, the Internal parts of the Ball Joints will also begin to wear. If, at any time, you start to feel Up and Down Play in the Lower Ball Joint, you simply take the set screw out of the side of the housing and tighten the Ring, then put the set screw back in, grease and you’re good to go!
EMF Ball Joints are TRULY REBUILDABLE – Which means inside the Ball Joint housing there is a removable race and pin. This removable race acts as the wear point inside the housing, protecting it from any damage. When the time comes to rebuild the Ball Joint, there is no need to press the housing out of the knuckle. You simply rebuild the Ball Joint right on the truck by removing the set screw on the side of the body, then removing the Threaded Ring or Cap using a Spanner Wrench. Finally, you pop the internal race(s) and pin out and put the new ones in, tighten up the Ring/Cap, put the set screw back in and grease! Saving you Time and Money.
EMF is a Canadian Company, which means we need parts that last in all sorts of extreme temperatures. EMF Ball Joints are manufactured by us in our humble shop in Alberta, Canada. EMF Ball Joints are made from 4140 HTSR Chromoly Steel and then they go through a process called QPQ Salt Bath Nitriding and this is what gives the material added strength and the smooth, long lasting, anti-galling black finish.
We don’t believe customers should have to pay an arm and a leg for good parts so we try to keep costs as low as we can while keeping the quality as high as we can offer.

Quick Facts about the EMF Ball Joint:
3 Canadian/US Patents covering the design
Rebuildable so you will never have to purchase an entire unit again, you simply replace the inner race and pin and off you go. You can do this right on the truck without removing the housing from the knuckle
Serviceable so if you ever start to feel movement in the joint, you simply back out the set screw on the side of the cap and tighten the cap then replace the set screw. This can be done right on the truck without having to remove anything from the knuckle.
Greaseable so you can just pump a couple squirts of grease into it around every oil change and go
The entire unit is 100% Canadian Made by an Alberta Small Business. We have a strict Quality Assurance policy and each piece we make is numbered and logged with tolerances and measurements documented so if there is ever a problem we can look back on when it was manufactured and what the material specs were.
EMF is the only Ball Joint with the removable race and pin (part of our patents). Competitor products have a removable pin that can be rebuilt, however the inside of the housing will wear as the pin wears resulting in the inevitable replacement of the entire unit in the future, as the pin will no longer possess a tight fit. By having the internal race and pin set on the EMF ball joint, the race will act as the wear point instead of the housing body creating a long lasting unit.
EMF’s price point is set below the competitor pricing which is very enticing to the customer. We are not only a manufacturer and business, we are also the consumer so we wanted to have something affordable and high quality available.
Each EMF Ball Joint unit is made from 4140 HTSR material and then sent to a metal treating facility to be Nitride Coated. Liquid Salt Bath Nitriding is a second heat treating process on the material resulting in up to a 30% strength increase as well as a beautiful black oxide corrosion resistant coating that also resists galling and does not reduce the tolerances of the pieces.
EMF Ball Joint Warranty
Life-Time Warranty against Material and Manufacturers Defects. EMF will replace part of or the entire unit if it is determined to be an issue that falls under this category. The customer is encouraged to contact EMF directly to determine cause of fault and to receive warrantied products.
Warranty does not cover breakage due to misuse of the product, improper installation or as a result of another component failure on the vehicle.
EMF Ball Joints are meant to be rebuilt, which means the internal races and pin will wear over time under normal circumstances. The internal race and pin components are not covered by replacement Warranty, unless it is determined there is a manufacturer defect that caused premature wear. In order to maximize your product life, regular maintenance which includes tightening of the cap and greasing are required.
