Front track bar

We talk on here about the importance of properly torquing the track bar bolts and making sure the hole is true and its all attached to a rubber bushing at the axle. Would a heim joint at this location make better sense? I don't have DW but I do get a good shake between 35 an 40.

I'd start with tire balance for a shake within a certain MPH range. Or, swap rear to front and see if anything changes.

if the rubber is in good condition and the opposite end (the rod end) is tight it shouldn't be contributing to a shake.

Even most aftermarket track bars keep a flexible bushing at that location, though I have seen less-flexible polyurethane instead of rubber.

I think a heim joint would transmit a lot of noise into the frame.

If it's only happening between 35 and 40 it sounds more like a tire balance issue.
