Joint replacement

Hello, looking to replace rear track bar JOINT.
I got KRAWLER 2.5 X-FACTOR
Should I go with KRAWLER JOINT? Or is there something better on market?

THANKS

I'd stick a RK heim back on. Only to ensure that the threads match up.

If there is a problem with the joint, call Rock Krawler and ask them if they will replace it.

Which one ? RK has a new frame side pro flex joint. The axle side you really dont have many options other than a heim .

RK should work with you to get this resolved. If not, you can measure the thread pitch and dia to get a replacement from Ruffstuff here. Or get a new rear trackbar with a Johnny Joint here.

X2 on calling RK and let them have a shot at getting you what you need.
