D44 Bombproof Balljoints

I know you can figure something out... ever thought about it?

something that isnt going to wear out after a year or less...

I know there is a demand, but is there a solution?

I admit, i should have seen that coming

to me, 35s on a d60 is a bit overkill, plus alot more money.

I'm with skerb. Something like a onelink but smaller for each balljoint, maybe?
You would probably have to have a whole new inner C and maybe knuckle. It would be pimp, however to have one that used the innerds from your 2.63" Ballistic joints.

I would be down for a set. Maybe just press in uniballs with a tapered through bolt to fit factory knuckles.

I`d like to know also. I MIGHT be swayed into doing a 44/60 hybird if good BJ`s were available, thanks Jeff

Something like a uniball, also this would make fitment of larger joints in a d44 better, like hte RCV shafts or even D60 joints (don't know if this is even possible, but would be sweet)

what brand of the ball joint you was using? thats looks really bad even that seem happend to you 3 times!

bud of mine had a D44 with Spicer ball joints and they lasted few years on a heavy rig with 37" trxus and still tight when removed and now under other rig, no problem so far as i heard.

oh right, somebody had to be hardcore enough on here that actaully breaks them by just breathing on them

Any info on these, seems like with the current upgrades available for shafts there may be a new found place for a beefed up 44 ball joint.

We have found what we think is a solution, but it is not cost effective at this point... still working!

Ballistic Wrecking Crew huh? Kinda catchy

Thanks for the update Jeff.

Thinking of all us SOB`s who already have HP44`s up front and would like a little more beef. RCV has come up with what looks like good shafts. Crane and Dedenbear have knuckles it you want them.

Just boils down to the dang BJ`s that no one has been able to improve on.

Surely the BWC will come up with something

I wouldn't mind paying more than what it cost to replace the ball joints just so i don't have to do it all the time.

Jeff,
bouncing this back up to the top.

I have a built HP44 on the YJ now, Superiors, CTM, Girdle As an old man who wheels in the Michigan woods it`ll probaly last forever. But I simply don`t like the wimpy BJ`s.

Also have a HP60 that has been retubed. About to start collecting parts to make a swap. But my luck is that you guys will have a solution just after I spent a shitload of $$ on the 60. Which I really don`t need.

Can you give us fawked up SOB`s a teaser at least ?

Another here with a built HP44 interested in beefier ball joints. I have CTMs, chromo shafts, and even Dedenbear knuckles. If someone made bombproof Dana 44 ball joints I'd buy Crane Inner C's and be done. I'd never give a 60 another thought.
