Do either the Dynatrac or American Iron kits allow the upper "c" to support some of the load or is that still a feature only on the Rare Parts balljoints?
Can you take a better picture of one of the upper joints unwrapped and also measure the lip on the upper BJ that will sit at the bottom of the upper "c"Take a look at the new ones from Metal Cloak. I'm local and drove down and got a set, very nice. It looks like the have the good parts from the dynatrac and rare parts. Grease-able, sealed, rebuildable and split the weight on upper/lower.

I'm just waiting for the Tq specs to be published and I'll put them in with the RCVs I have leaned up against the wall.

Yes, I'm keeping an eye on them. At that price I'm not going to be the first Tera44 Ginny pig like I was for the 1st production run of the RP joints. I'll wait until someone actually installs them on Tera44 housing. Somewhere in this forum I discussed my issue with the RP joints and they were of no help at the time. They did make the threaded body longer later down the road after I already ditched the RP BJs.@Rob50lx take a look at those new Metalcloak mentioned above
