Do these exist? Where can i get them if so?

Seems like a better option than a ball joint flip.

I have found them for gen 3, but thats it.

I thought I had seen them in the recent past but my mind might be on the spacer kits. In some ways I prefer the spacer or flip simply not knowing if the extended joint is made with proper material or heat treat.

Looking around on ebay and being selective one can find allot of what you need.

Body Damage is Cool
Have you put extended shocks and extended your upper shock mount? It's been shown the shock is the limiting factor.

I have the arb/ome kit. So springs and 4 shocks. The shocks are longer and have more travel than the stock by a good amount. I cranked up my torsion bars as far as they would go, until i hit the bump stops and that gave me the right amount of lift to match the back. Seems like the only way to get my alignment right and to get back some downward travel, i need extended ball joints. Right now my plan is to install gen 2 ucas, then do a ball joint flip and maybe add ball joint spacers depending.

Sounds like you have it figured out. Carry spares.
