johnny joint for a 3-link

i'm puttin a 3-link in the front end of my 89 xj, need help on what size joint to put on the top of the axle. i will be running 35's but all is being built to handle 37's in the future.

if you deal with this a lot or anyone who works at a parts shop and have a link to a part let me know. i just want to get the right part so in 6 months i dont have to replace a worn out part.

thanks for your help.

There is an off road shop in Jenison I think. I can't remember what it is called. They sell them for 36 bones a peice.

Maybe it is Cascade not Jenison. Somewhat near you nonetheless.

If you have a traction bar the ~2.5 will be fine. If your talking a wishbone style upper, then run the 3"

This is the RE 3795 and uses a 3/4" bolt and is 2 5/8 wide with a 30 deg. misalignment.

RE 3767 has the threaded tube already welded to the joint. Both completely rebuildable.
