mostly Low Range Offroad Flex joints, weld on cartridge style for one end and thread in style for the other. huh, they just show their large size on the website now. but they have the smaller size currie joints in stock.

I've also got some ruff stuff heims that i'm using.

as far as noise, with proper grease and servicing, the joints won't be any louder than the coilovers or exhaust or sheet metal or engine or tires, so i'm not really worried about it. IF noise is a problem, then that is treated on the inside of the car with heavy sound deadner, carpet and trim instead of just thin aluminum.

this is about as close a picture as i can get from my build that show the different joints. i

why not? in this crazy world of electronic steering and hydraulic steering there is no need for a mechanical link from the frame to the tie rod, so you don't "need" to run a panhard/3-link
