For my SAS I am going to use stock 79 bko radius arms, extended and boxed. My question is about using Currie's Johhny joint or Evolution Machining's large heim. The evo heim is very expensive but uses a 3/4" thru bolt, and the currie johnny joint uses a 9/16" thru bolt. Is the 9/16" thru bolt for the johnny joint large enough? Or what other choices do I have for heims or johnny joints. I like the evo heims but that is alot of cash for trying to make some cheap costing arms.

Any one have experiance with the Currie johnny joint? Are they a quality unit? I like the evo heim but they are just to expensive.

I'm running them on my SAS build, I wanted them sealed to keep the salt out of them.

I used the 2 1/2 Johnny Joint also. Very happy with the quality and construction of the joint.

What size of Johnny Joint are people using for the Track bar? I was thinking the smaller 2" 3/4 shank with 7/16 thru bolt would be the ones to use ?

Currie has a 2" 3/4 shank with a 7/16 thru bolt. I thought this would be a good size for the track bar, but I dont know if that is to small.
