Ford’s new Ball-Joint Front Suspension is the greatest
advance in chassis design in twenty years. In place of the
kingpin and “hinge” system found in most cars, Ford has
simple ball joints for easier steering and riding.
This Ball-Joint Suspension also keeps your wheels in line
far longer . . . and it helps keep that “new-car feel” much
longer, too. In addition 12 points of wear are eliminated, so
there are only 4 instead of 16 lubrication points.
