He had been running the Duroflex joints installed in the JJ housings until he got his current set up, so yes they work.

MC housings are 1.75" wide, Currie housings are 2" wide. MC provides machined washers with the bushing inserts to make up for the difference in width when installing into Currie housings.

That's what I was wondering, cool, I may be in for all 4 1.25 joints. Gotta look at my cash flow.

So are you abandoning the MC Duraflex Joints all together?

No, he has switched the MC bushings into currie housings then got MC joints after he tested him. He likes them too much to ditch them.

For that matter, I like them to much too.

The reason I ask is changing out my shot poly bushings is on my list for winter maintenance and MC makes the kit to replace all of the RE joints with the Duraflex joints. I read through his report when he first put them on and I don't think I have heard anything since so just wanted an update after about a year or so to see if he was still liking them or not.

Ditching the RE joints is a good thing, not to impressed with those

No, they're staying put. I'm just reducing my excess inventory.

I have 2x 1.25" and 2x 1" housings remaining. JJ or Duroflex, you pick em. $40 a piece.

Thanks to the fellas that have taken the other 4 off my hands.

Hendrix talked me into it but it's all good.....two buddies dueling it off. He got my vote.

There's a lot of nice rigs (Jankoid, especially) that haven't even got a vote yet and that's upsetting.

Glad you finally did. I figured it would be the only way I could get you in on the contest. Hope you get it.
