Got the new joints, although they did not specifically answer via email whether there were design changes on this, the new housing is about 1/8" taller and I have complete confidence that the new design will not suffer the same failure mode, it looks like a much more beefy housing. In addition they put a soft backing on the set screw so it no longer cuts up the threads of the upper locking cap, and the lower has a bigger thread size on the grease zerk (the old ones were sort of a pain to thread in without stripping or cross threading them). Not only is it stronger but they fixed my only two subtle complaints on the product!
I have to say Rare Parts is honestly the single greatest company I've ever worked with on customer support. If I got identical lowers I would have been skeptical but with bigger lower housings I'm fully on board with Rare Parts again.
