Not long ago, alot of people were saying the Napa GOLD tie rods, ball joints, & u-joints were stronger than the moog stuff. Check 'em out first to be sure

I work at NAPA...
Master Ride Chassis (MRC/silver) is crap
Regular NAPA Chassis (NCP/gold) is good but not as good as MOOG
and NCP is better than MRC

I guess I will be replacing both sides again with Moogs.
Hopefully they will last untill yours come out. Not really any other options.
That is unless anyone knows of a better product out there.
I am open to options.
check out the spicer HD ones a guy ordered a couple pages back

Thought this was interesting. Could not find a price or if they would fit standard Dana 44s.

Both use D44 fronts in the Rubicon models, so you might be onto something here.

Could be worth it to call them up and see, but Dynatrac is usually big coin.

The Rubi 44 has 30 outers. It doesn't use the "real" 44 ball joints.

Thanks for clearing that up, I wasn't entirely sure if the TJ's used D30 or D44 ball joints.

But, it also lists the newer JK models, which use larger outer assembalies. I'm not really sure if they use standard D44 ball joints considering Jeep has specialized in bastardizing D44 front axles.

It also says they work in any present Dynatrac aftermarket axle, and Dynatrac does sell multiple D44 models.

If they fit "real" 44's, then they'd list a shitload of models prior to 1992, and they don't.

Sent Dynatrac a e mail. If I do not hear anything from them will give them a call sometime in the next couple of days.
Will let you know.

What have you guys seen out there price wise for comparable upgraded balljoints?

I just installed the RCVs on my Bronco and I am very interested in this too.

Hey guys when are the ball joints going into production? Read the tread and I honestly think the weak point in my 44's are ball joints, broke them 2 different times....I'm definitely interested

No go on the Dynatrac ones.
We only have our JK ProSteer Ball Joints available in the Jeep line at this time. We have other versions to engineer, but I have little tech info as to what they will fit at this time.

We're kind of perfecting the design and material choices right now. This is definitely one part that we are not going to rush into market, so if you are holding your breath, please don't.

We are working on this product however, and when we come up with a suitable, cost effective solution I promise I will let everyone know. We believe that we are on the right track, and even though our prototypes would work fine, I think that we can still do better.

Thanks for every one's interest, we're moving in the right direction.

Jeff
