Help with Jonny joint repalcement size for Full Traction Long Arm
I have a Full Traction Long Arm Kit on my 03 Wrangler. The kit was bought in 06. The Upper Arm bushings, Frame side, need to be replaced. Full Traction is trying to sell me replacements, a Heim type joint, for 140.00 a side.
It looks like the ones on it are a Uni Ball, or Jonny joint type now.
I need to know a replacement joint size that I can just screw into the old arm.
I know Currie makes lots of Jonnys for 40 bucks but dont know what to order and no help from Full Traction, or local 4x4 stores.
Has anyone ran into this or changed theirs out? Please help, I dont want to have to take them off and bring it somewhere to have the threads and everything measured if I dont have to, as its my daily driver as well.
Ya, got that part. I just wanted to avoid taking it off, and bringing it to a nut and bolt shop to put calipers on it. I have never done it, and I know it sounds stupid, but its a little intimidating. I was hoping someone had done it and could just share a part number. Let the guys at the nut and bolt shop measure it to death, and I order once. Instead of me getting something wrong and sending it back. Being my DD, and the shop not close to the house, it becomes a hassle I want to avoid if possible..
As I told you on JF, it's either 1-14 or 1.25-12. Not difficult at all. Measure the diameter of the shank and you're done. Hell, post up a picture next to a tape measure and I'll just tell you what it is.
LoL... love the hostility... I got you.. I was just overwhelmed with different size jonny type joints from different distributors for different applications... I think this might be it... I was still hoping someone had come up with a better solution than the crap thats on it and could actually help me with a part number... This looks like the one that might work.
I went to 4wheel parts and no one could help me.. thats why I was looking for a part number from someone that might have had the same problem.. I can take it off ,and have a local bolt and nut shop measure the hell out of it and get the size.. or I can probably do it, and screw something up when I order it from someone I find that makes something close.. Send it back, and get it right the second time, but I was looking for help with a part number, so I didnt have to take it off, waste more time, or screw up ordering it... thanks
5 yrs or so..Arizona is easy on things, and they are greasable. and actually, I only have one that blew out the snap ring, which pushed the bushing out, So the snap ring and washer are sitting o the bolt. I might even be able to repair the bushing by putting it back together if I have more time to get it off. I just figured its been a while and I would just screw on some new ones that I can find parts for.. The Heim joints are holding up well. I just ordered the bushing for the front track bar though. Its starting to get some slop and cause vibs... Right now I only have time to bend over, stick my head under, see the snap ring, and washer popped out from the bushing, and get pissed I dont have time to fix it.. My OCD is killing men...
