you only have JJ's from USA for reliability - some people use a joint from tractor applications but they don't last long.

^ Wrong... anywher ein the UK JJ's start from 48 + the jam nut & + the insert... = about 80 + vat by the time you have bought a bolt also...

www.offroad-armoury.com for Creeper joints = 64.50 including all the above... + IMHO they are stronger joints.
