Drop a PM to qwikgta, Rob just did this conversion and had serious fitment issues. I had mine installed before I bought the car so I don't know it if the PO of my car had issues. I had a heck of a time finding a shop to do a proper 4 corner alignment but once it was done it has been very good!
"serious" is the key word. Just saw your PM. Thought I'd answer here. Yes, I had a similar issue, except mine was the steering rack end of spindle. The first set I got were drilled wrong (upside down), the second set had different size holes for the steering rack ball joints. One side was open enough, the other not. I had to drill out the hole with a 12mm drill to get the ball joint to go in all the way. Not saying you should do the same, but yours looks just like mine did. Just out of kicks, have you tried other ball joints in the same hole to see if any other ones fit? I did, and none fit into the end that was drilled too small. Sorry I don't have any help, but I have had to modify every part that was sent to me in my kit. I know they are the only game in town for a lot of these parts, so you just have to deal with what they send you. My 1.5" dropped spindles were made on two different days, by two different welders. When I put them side-by-side you could see that they looked different. The bracket for the 13" brakes was off by 1/2 inch, the actual steel used was different between the two, if I didn't already send another set back, I would have sent it back too, now I wish I had. I had a lot of other fitment issues too, but they are not relevant to this discussion.
bottom line, you may have to drill out the hole, If its the same as the others its 12mm.
