Seriously, call Justin, he'll get it for you the easy way, I've got mine through him with the HD steering components ( and all greasable nipples on them )

That's why it helps to have the right torch, apply heat quickly and in the right spot, and know what you are doing.

Those QH joints, like the Lemforder joints, are not worth the baggy they put them in. They'll be toast in under 10,000 miles.

Would I want the greasable ones? Seriously 10 bucks? Is this a joke or is the non genuine pure trash? The envelope will cost more

Got the new arm. Should I grease the splints before installing the new one?

Just took care of it. Surprisingly the hardest part was getting the steering stabilizer side off.

Question- is the arm on far enough. I tightened as much as I could but I see splints showing

There's rust!
Better take it all apart and get all new front steering and suspension parts

Turns out this wasn't the cause of my steering noise anyway. It was the shredded power steering belt. Oh well

FWIW Lemförder do make the OEM TRE, but it's obviously different (shallower ??) to their aftermarket offering.

(yeah, I've dug an oldie up)
