heim joints aren't all theyre cracked up to be, unless they're agricultural grade they'll disentigrate as soon as dirt gets into them, you have to make sure that if and when they fail they wont pull off the bolt (some sort of double shear point or a Big washer below the head). tie rods ends actually run at a better angle and are fail safe. hiems are a magazine popularized gimick (as far as steering goes)
