heim joint on shocks

i am curious if anyone has or ever heard of putting a female heim joint on the end of their shocks instead of purchasing new ones? purchasing new ones arent a problem, but i'd rather not, since my shocks are less then 8 months old.

Instead of purchasing new ones... what? New Heim joints? New shocks? If your shocks are worn out, new Heim joints on the ends won't help.

No need, rubber or poly bushings are sufficient ( and quieter ).

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

no no no..... you guys arent getting what i meant. i have a 6" lift on my xj. i have skyjacker nitro shocks for the 6" lift. i also have an iro long arm kit on my xj. the 6" shocks wont let the suspension cycle and droop when flexing and limits downward axle travel. i have the synergy shock stem conversion on order to accept a loop style shock. if i add a heim joint with the stem conversion, i can add around 4" of added shock travel and will only have around 20-30 bucks in the heims, instead of 30-45 per shock. see what i'm gettin at?
