Yea I figured, I do plan to upgrade it in the future but hadn't planned on doing so right now. The ruff stuff kit is a damn good deal though. Thanks for the input!Its not meant to be serviceable. You can get it out with heat and what not. If you have 17 inch wheels I'd look into ruff stuff kit
I've been having the same issues and questions because mine actually has some kind of clamp on that end as well. My steering has been sloppy so I'm wanting to change this out. I've already replaced the upper/inner tie rod on passenger side and the one on the pitman arm.
