So on the subject of Heim joints, are they all created equal??? I am guessing not, but don't know. The one that is on my Jeep is the front Rubicon Express trackbar, which I stated had lasted 8 years or so before it stared squeaking. If I recall the RE heim had a plastic race that looked to be embedded in the heim joint. Do all Heims utilize a plastic race or are some metal on metal?? Wondering if the one from MC would be last as long on a trackbar as the one I have in my RE bar.
On the MC front track bar , Does any one know the distance from the mounting surface of the heim where it meets the track bar mount to the center of the ball ( pivot point ) on the heim . I want to determine if it is any less than what I have on my JKS 126 bar with the 5/8" bolt JJ installed. It may be a better match to the pivot point on the drag link end at the pitman which would make the track bar and DL more evenly matched making the draglink and track bar closer to being parallel than a bar with a JJ on the frame mounted end .
