Presumably the joints are operating beyond their design range. A coat of red paint might help though...

because of the drop, they may need to "reach" further... only thing I can suggest is measure them, and then measure some from a different model. Not sure on the 80 sport ones, if they are the same- they were lowered (about 25mm) as standard; obviously if you've gone more than say 40mm, that's the problem (wheel is further away than designed for, as mentioned)
