Pillow ball mounts allow you to adjust the camber of your suspension. Without the pillow ball mounts, just means that you can't adjust your camber unless you get a camber kit. Pillow ball mounts are great for the front suspension since it will hold your front camber settings much better than a typical front camber kit that is prone to moving around in the strut.
