IMPORTANT LEC member Readit found that the previously identified QH QR3167S ball joints are ~6mm longer and ~6mm taller than the Lotus OEM ones. Even if the geometry is correctly set up after fitting (highly advisable, especially as they are not identical to OEMs), using these ball joints may affect the dynamics (bump steer) and fitting is probably not advisable. Please check LEC for the latest information

The QH3167S image inverted and overlaid on the Lotus OEM. Although the actual taper is close, the minimum diameters (marked by red lines) appear to be some way off:
