Im gathering parts to do a front 3 link on my 02 Grand Cherokee. I've spent ALOT of time searching what seems like an endless sea of rod ends/johnny joints. In searching for 1.25" shank joints, I have seen prices from $39.99 (Trail gear) to $99.95 (Currie). I have lots of fab experience, but I have not scratch-built a suspension before:homer:. Which joints are preferred by the masses, and why? My rig sees 80% street/ 20%trails.
