For fabricators and suspension system builders. Curries Johnny Joints offer 30 degrees of unrestricted movement in any direction as compared to 22 degrees on a common heim joint. The bushings in the Johnny Joint rod ends are made with a high-density, "tough 88" urethane that encases the inner ball. It is a very durable material, and is impervious to weather. The special center ball is heat-treated steel for extra strength, cross-drilled for thru-bolt lubrication, features a 9/16" thru bolt hole, and a 2 5/8" mounting width. The outer shell is .180" DOM tubing, and the retaining washers are heat-treated steel. Sold each.
Highly recommend getting the Currie JJ tool. I attempted many time to press the joint together using my shop tools, very tough. Finally opted to the Currie tool and all the joints went together easily. Saved a lot of time. Love me some Johnny Joints. One problem though, the bolt that comes with this JJ is not long enough for a track bar mount.
Since 1959, Corona, California-based Currie Enterprises has been currying favor with Jeep enthusiasts by manufacturing suspension systems and accessories, driveline parts and steering components that withstand grueling off-road conditions. With the rise in interest in off-roading in the 1970s, the company focused its attention on trucks and Jeeps, specifically rearends. Replacing worn out or damaged suspension parts like leaf spring bushings goes a long way toward improving off-road performance and Currie's specialty products exceed expectations. Addressing the needs of a variety of Jeep models, Currie is the right choice when you want to lift your Jeep, upgrade the steering or take the guesswork out of making a safe mounting. Shop Currie Now
