If you have the regular travel sport arms, they use a straight 14mm ball joint.

You could take yours to a car parts store and match it with an automotive one. As long as it has a 14mm thread and has the same taper on the joint end it should work.

Not sure if they will or not.

I know the long travel arms use a 16mm ball joint. The upper joint is not straight though and the lower joint has interior thread and a bolt to mount it to the arm, rather than the exterior threads and nuts like the upper.

Do you need an upper or lower?

I suppose you can take one of your old joints and match it up. Make sure the taper of the joint, shaft diameter and overall length are the same though.

They list both joints on their site for $55 a piece.

Dunno bout using a tierod end as a ball joint. Espically ment for a vw beetle. Killer price, but i would just get the correct replacement parts imo...
