    Very common problem - Lower ball joint suffers the worst. My local F-shop had four 360's in for ball joints the other week.

    I personally believe it’s a bad design of the wishbone arm. The spherical bearings can withstand a huge amount of load, but only providing that the housing that the bearing is pushed into can withstand the force. I have 360 lower wishbone sitting on my desk at work at the moment and the wall thickness is only about 6mm and in aluminium it looks fairly obvious why these fail.

    If you need any more help - feel free to PM me

    Was Ferrari created a fix with the newer 360's?
