Whats everybody like for front suspension?
Can you explain the importance of misalignment to me?x2 on RKs new-gen Krawler joints. They are the sweetness.
The MetalCloak stuff is looking good these days too.....
JJs are good stuff but they are a gold ignot wrapped in a banana leaf. What I'm trying to say is the joint itself is fine but you'll never come close to getting full misalignment out of them before the housing contacts the mounting bracket and you're finished getting flex outta them (at least on the JK). They are kind of a half-baked design. Then they fatigue the mounting brackets or flex has to come from somewhere else in the suspension. They like to work your jam nuts loose.
I have pictures of nice polished rings on the inner surfaces of my mounting brackets and matching ones on JJ ends, because they were constantly meeting well before full misalignment is reached.
I don't think you want to take advice from a guy that has called the best joint option on the market a "half-baked design".Can you explain the importance of misalignment to me?
And I, conversely, don't think you want to take advice from a guy who voluntarily overlooks an obvious mechanical interference issue which reduces joint performance and increases mounting point stresses, just so he can call them the 'best joint option on the market'.I don't think you want to take advice from a guy that has called the best joint option on the market a "half-baked design".
