That is true that it is closer, actually 5 mm (0.2'') closer to suspension/brakes components based on the wheel/tire calculator, but it's also shorter by 16mm, so that needs to be taken into account too. But if Mofsteel hasn't had any problems with it, then it won't be any closer to the ball joint while off roading, since that piece moves with the tire.
