What would make you question it? Definitely less slop in a heim joint vs a TRE.
If you are comparing a damaged worn stock unit with an FK rod end then yes you might experience that. Compare an EMF TRE with one of the many crappy rod end manufacturers and you will experience the opposite. Until i realized only the finest quality rod ends were worth buying i had many sloppy rod ends.

Thanks guys for info, I think I'm going to go for the Ruff Stuff Y-link. But I'm thinking of doing the Durango steering box upgrade first since I can get that done right away. Hopefully it will help with driving at highway speeds shakiness.
Any guys done that? I've heard good things about it.
I'll second your choice of going with the RuffStuff set up. I moved the tierod over the knuckle and swapped to an astro can pitman arm for clearance reasons. I bought a poly spacer from JCR, it's still a Y link but my dead spot is minimal compared to my trashed stock setup. It cost me a little more than replacing it with the stock stuff, my TREs were shot so it was a necessary upgrade.
