Talking Sold - Four Heims on 1.25" rod, Skyjacker Kevlar/Teflon

Sold.


I haven't gotten an answer as to whether they carry the same 1-year warranty that the original set did.

These are NEW IN THE BOX. They are warranty replacements for the set off my XJ. Come with lock nuts and spacers. Same ones are on my Ram, so they're pretty much overkill on an XJ. If you're wondering why they were warrantied, it was because I put about 35,000 miles on them in about 8 months. They didn't break, but I have a long commute and the rattle was really annoying. Can't see it happening on a wheeler. Have the same parts on the Ram for almost a year, which have been submerged for long periods of time and have a lot more weight bearing on them, and haven't heard a peep from them. Hole through the joint is 1".

I've been trying to figure this out. They look just like the small joints that RE has listed on their site, but RE does not list the big ones. I looked through he QA1 catalog and neither the pictures or the sections in the catalog show the inserts. The outer housing formation was also different. The only thing I saw there with a similar insert design was QA1's SLB series spherical bearings and looking at the Skyjacker rod end, I don't think that's what is in the middle of it. Otherwise, the closest thing I could find in the QA1 catalog that looked like them and are the right size is the EXM series.

$250. No trades. I thought I was told that these retail for $300. I was wrong:

Don't you have a Skyjacker kit on your Ram? Look under your truck? These are the same ones as are on my Ram.

I'll give them to you as an additional payment on the axles.
