heim joint question

got a pair of 7100 bilsteins and just wondering the life span of the heim joints. Do they "clunk" if worn out? They have a little play in them off of the truck but when on they seem to be tight? Any advice would be great thanx guys!! e

Eric - I've been running the 7100's for about 2 years and 45K miles now. I haven't had any problems with the heims - still tight and no noise. The only problem I have with these shocks is the nickel-plated finish. It's of poor quality and rusts easily. This seems to be a common complaint about the 7100's. But performance-wise, I can't complain.
