Default Cougar KC ball joints

I have had my KC since March and run it maybe 5 race days so relatively low use, but to my frustration I find the ball joints especially in the front end have a lot of play and have done since new.

Have anyone changed out the steering ball joints for another manufacturer that has less slop, same slop in rear upper suspension links as well,

Ive found if you get rid of the slop in the steering it will make the car very twitchy and difficult to drive, also you have to remember that it is a buggy not a touring car so suspension setup is not as crucial in my eyes. I can run my KC setup from the setup station and its perfect. Run the car and the cambers are different on all the wheels due to not landing flat from jumps. \I have a mantre, if looks right it is right and ive been racing 30+years

A buggy without slop makes for a nervous car.
