What do you guys think? Worth it? Looks a lot easier than welding on heim jointed rear arms. Maybe not as much droop, but it looks liek it has to be better than the stock bushing.

If the truck makes it - the trail wasn't tough enough.

When I was in Las Vegas trying to get a replacement set of bushings, Bill Goodman had a set he was looking to sell. I was desperate as I had blown one of my bushings and still had a 4 hour drive back to CA. Anyway to make a long story short, I didn't get them. I didn't want to drop $300 and be a guinnie pig for R&D. Bill had a used OEM bushing he gave me for free, still using it. The are supposed to be rebuildable and they should work like a stock bushing, I guess. But for $25, I think I'll stick with stock for now. If I keep blowing bushings, I'll give it some serious thought.
Those weld on ones are supposed to negatively effect on road driving and be noisy.

While I like the idea I'm not sure I would use a Johnny Joint in a push pull situation, Without looking at the allpication I know that in most these types of joints the TFE or UHMW "races" that hold in the ball are only held in with a snap ring.

I'm with Mike "cut it's ears off"

I like the idea, but I'd have to take a closer look before I'd give it an opinion either way. Like Revor said, the retention method is critical for these parts.

I would like bigger pictures of everything, as well as shots of both sides, to see how it's really built
