ICON Vehicle Dynamics is extremely proud to introduce the Delta Joint – a new product that combines the durability of a ball joint with the performance of a traditional uniball. This retrofit kit is made to replace the uni-ball joints in your Icon Vehicle Dynamics tube or billet upper control arms.

What makes the Delta Joint unique is that it brings the best of both worlds to ICON upper control arms with features that make it more robust than a uniball, and at the same time capable of greater angularity than a typical ball joint.

A zinc plated housing provides the first layer of corrosion resistance, while a tough grease seal keeps potentially harmful elements out of the inner workings of the joint. Metal on metal construction and a greasable design increase the longevity of the Delta Joint while at the same time allowing for noise-free operation.  A carburized taper pin decreases internal friction and further improves corrosion resistance.

It is the design of the Delta Joint’s taper pin that allows it to achieve the high angularity required to optimize suspension geometry in lifted applications.

Combine these features with the fact that the Delta Joint repeatedly outperformed the traditional 1” uniball in industrial pullout tests and it’s clear that this is a no-compromise addition to the vehicle’s suspension.

INCLUDES: Two Delta Joint Ball Joints.

Product Description

The Delta Joint’s patent pending design was conceived after an interesting pattern of premature uniball wear was recognized by our engineering team. What was peculiar about these cases was that they seemed to be consistently reported from areas in which road salts and other harsh de-icing agents are used throughout the year. After the inspection of several sets of uniballs, it was clear that wear and tear was being accelerated on these components in these particular conditions.

While the industry standard uniball does a great job of allowing the control arms of a vehicle to articulate with little bind, they do have an inherent weakness that leaves more to be desired when used in a daily driven application – exposure to the elements. Whether it be corrosive chemicals used on roadways or the unforgiving dirt and mud that comes with off-road adventure, uniballs allow this debris to build up and eventually work its way into the internals causing wear and possibly failure. Understanding this flaw and the problems that it creates is what sparked the idea of developing a heavy duty, high angle retrofit ball joint which ultimately led to the creation of the patent pending ICON Delta Joint.

The ICON Vehicle Dynamics Delta Joint is currently available in “retrofit kits” for all ICON tubular steel and billet upper control arms, as well as in upper control arm kits that have the Delta Joint pressed into them during the ICON manufacturing process. To retrofit a Delta Joint into a set of ICON upper control arms is a fairly simple operation, however there are tools offered by ICON to make the job easier.

ICON Vehicle Dynamics is so confident in the new Delta Joint that we’re introducing a product-specific warranty to help instill this same feeling in end users. As long as the Delta Joint is used in conjunction with a complete ICON suspension system we will stand behind the product 100% by offering a 5 year limited warranty* against defects or failures.

Shipping Methods and Costs:

We ship via UPS. Sometimes we use Priority Mail. No COD's. A reasonable freight charge per the UPS and USPS published rates will be added unless free freight is stated on the item description on the website. We know some customers want to know what their freight charge is going to be. We are working to implement that into our online ordering system. In the meantime, we are happy to provide freight quotes by email or phone, if needed. Please be assured that we are going to be charging the rates that UPS and USPS has printed in their current pricing, sometimes less. Basically, we are going to get your order to you as inexpensive and reliably as possible. *A NOTE ABOUT YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS INFO: Please be very careful to enter your address information correctly. An incorrect shipping address causes a lot of hassle and delays, and in addition UPS charges a substantial fee per package if the address you provide us is found to be incorrect when delivery is attempted. The shipment will usually need to be signed for by yourself or one of your representatives.

Payment Types Accepted:

Wor-Paypal We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover & PayPal. We use the Address Verification and V-Code Verification Service and require your exact credit card billing address as your bank has it entered into their database. This is to protect ourselves and the consumer from fraud. If this info doesn't match it will delay your order and we will contact you for clarification. We can send you a PayPal invoice for payment of your order, that option is available during checkout of your order cart. We also accept prepayment via money order, wire transfer, Western Union and other types of certified funds. Personal and company checks are accepted but we delay shipping your order till your check clears. Mailing address is shown on our Contact page.
  • In most cases, we do not charge your credit card until we are actually shipping your order.
  • Certain special orders will require prepayment.
  • No COD's.

Order Cancellations:

If you cancel your order after we have processed your card, you will incur a 3% cancellation fee. This is because it costs us at least 3% of your total to process your card, and we don't get that back when we refund your charge.

Return and Warranty Policy:

  • We will accept returns within 30 days of purchase and provide a refund.
  • All returns are subject to a restock fee.
  • The product must still be in the original clean packaging and uninstalled.
  • We do not refund shipping and handling charges.
  • There will be an additional rebox fee charged if the packaging needs to be replaced so please double box your returns.
  • There is no return of special order parts.

  • We are not responsible for any damage, costs or injuries that arise from use of these products.
  • It is the ultimate responsibility of the installer to ensure proper application and fit.

International Orders:

We normally send International customers a PayPal invoice for payment of their order. We also accept money orders, certified checks, Western Union and bank wire transfer. We will be charging a handling charge for International and APO orders. That's because we have to fill out a lot of extra paperwork and, in the case of using the US Postal Service, we often have to send someone to the service counter at the local post office, which is a time consuming pain in the rear at our post office. A note about International customs, duties, taxes, fees, etc: We do not charge any International import duties, fees, taxes, etc. We have no way to determine if these fees will be charged or how much will be charged. That's between you and your Country. We'll do our best to use the most economic yet reliable International shipping method we have available, but once the package departs our warehouse we have no control of the extra importation costs you incur from your destination country. International Free Trade Agreements apparently don't pertain to us common folk!

Contacting us:

Email anytime or call 8am - 5pm Pacific time, Monday - Thursday and 8am - 1pm Friday. Please know that our phone system is sometimes overwhelmed at times or we can't catch the phone but leave a message and we'll get back to you asap. Usually before the end of the day or sooner.

It is merely sending the order securely to our order desk for review and processing. We don't have the site setup to provide automatic freight costs. Freight charges will be added to your order unless the product specifically states "free shipping". We do understand the need of the customer to know freight charges and we can email the freight costs prior to processing your order upon request, or you can contact us for a freight quote prior to ordering. We get back to you by email if there is a backorder situation or we have any questions or problems with your order.
