Ballistic ends have a HORRIBLE track record as far as longevity goes. they don't last for shit after you rebuild them either. Not to mention Ballistic fabrications terrible customer service and long history of fucking people over. I run Johnny joints and have for 5 years and they are all still very tight, not a daily driver though. Ruffstuff has awesome deals on rod ends with the tubing adapters and mis-alignment joints as a package. They are also running a good sale that ends today I see.
