Why is this happening? i been told, put SSL King Springs in the front and Ball-Joint will not touch? but that does not make sence....

its the rolling diameter of your tyres causing it to foul not the suspension. The ipper balljoint is static regardless of what suspension setup you have. what size are your tyres? that will be the issue, not the spring height or camber or anything else.

The tyre is simply too high for your application.if it i just clipping, then by going a slightly norrower tyre or slightly smaller sidewall profile SHOULD correct your issue.
