Exclamation XJ Track bar

Hi everyone.
I am looking to get a new adjustable track bar for my XJ.
Ive always had the track bars with bushings on both ends but ive recently found a decent used track bar with a bushing on one end and a heim on the other.
My question is what are the disadvantages and advantages of both?

Would the heim end hold up better? Would the one with both bushings articulate more?

Thanks for the help!

trac bar is a push pull to keep axle straight under the rig. bushings absorb vibrations better. imo i haven't noticed a difference other then price on either setup. as long as it stays tight, fucking run it all night!

I really liked this track bar from IRO.

If you're doing a lot of crawling and not a lot of road, I could see a heim doing better on the axle end, could easily swap out a bushing for a heim.
