I have been running the Rusty's kit for a couple of months now. I am happy with it. Deffinitely a lot more stout than stock.

Just put the joints in double sheer, This is a friends 44 front.

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.

I'm putting a Waggy D44 with flat tops in my YJ and one thing I've found is that if your state has inspections heim joints may not work since they are not DOT approved in most states.
