flipping balljoints on mazdas are perfectly safe. it will not get you a 2" drop though. it only applys to flipping the mounting surface on it, not the direction of the way the shaft goes so having a tapered shaft wouldnt matter at all. read this how-to on it and it will probably answer all your questions.

since this thread is in the mazda section, i thought he probably had a mazda too. i dont see why it would be if he didnt have a mazda.
