Anyone know the exact inside diameters of the metal outer sleeves of the large and small JJ's?
i could find out for you as i have a few spare ones i will never use and i have 3 on my rig which i cant wait to take offReally Sick Rigs said:Anyone know the exact inside diameters of the metal outer sleeves of the large and small JJ's?
yes i even went to curry to get themGOAT1 said:Hendo: were you using actual Johnny Joints from Currie or one of the copies out there from Daystar or others? I have had real good luck with actual Currie JJ's and not so good luck with the Daystar ones.
My results have been about the same... I run JJ's in the front and RE joints in the rear. The RE joints were shot after about 6 months. Basically I have 1-1/4" heims at the axle end and the RE's at the frame end in the rear and the heims are great after 2.5 years now but the RE's have about 1/8-1/4" movement in them :barf: Everytime I change directions I get a nice THUNK as the pinion flops around from the slack.Hendo said:i had put them in my lower links and after only about 6 trips they needed to be rebuilt due excess movement within the outer cage ,so i had swapped them for hiems, now i have two in my upper links which need to be changed asap because of the same thing
i do miss the slight dampening effect from the jj but i dont want to rebuild them every 5 trips plus they are a pain to rebuild especially when they are welded to one end of your links
