Changed A-arm joints

Recommended Posts

At over 3500k Miles on my trooper. My a arm joints were shot. Ordered new from joyner USA but sent them back. I felt they were low quality especially for $25 a piece. They were nylon injected but the nylon was loose inside the end. I expected more for $25 a piece.  And honestly the original heims were clearly higher quality. It concerns me that Joyner may be supplying lesser quality parts than they used to.

I ended up ordering QA1 time joints from eBay for $19 apiece they are also nylon injected but higher quality. The part number is :

QA1 MXMR16 Rod End (X) Endura Alloy Ht M-R 16Mm-16Mm

May want to pin this in part section of this forum.

I got mine at McMaster-Carr 4483T36
PTFE/Kevlar Insert, M16 x 2.0 x 40.mm shank, 21,966 lb static radial load capacity, 23°, $25.60 ea. or $204.80 for 8

 

This is already in parts and pieces, but I had to do a search to find it, but I will add your reference also.  It's not as pretty as just the joint, but on everyone of my joints, I slid a piece of polyurethane foam behind the joint, packed it with grease and then covered it the foam and then taped the foam down to the arm, not as pretty, but I would rather not change heims all the time.

Ps I'll see if I can find my photos of the process tomorrow, good night :)

Hi we sell heim joint seals. We have different sizes. With this type of seal it should keep the joint clean for a long time.You will have to slide them in the sides. No grease, it does attract dirt and sand into the heim joint. We are carrying a much better quality heim like the one you purchased at a better price. We are carrying UHMW bushings for the rear of all joyners.

Thanks, Rick

There is just one really good upgrade possible, by using different joints that will hold up to 50.000km without any problems. I drive them on both of my buggies - its perfect.

 

Price: 320€ - and you never need to think again about that stuff.

 

 

The stock joints ( doesn't matter which manufacturer) are not working, because of wrong installation position when placed in. These bearing are made to fit vertical, not horizontal.

      Hey guys just bought a 07 trooper. Previous owner stated it ran great etc prior to clutch job then had issues. I drained tank, replaced plugs etc. found one of the injectors connectors was not connected and plugged it in. Solid 50psi fuel pressure.  It starts easier than previously on 3 cylinders but still runs very very poorly. I’m thinking the sound I’m hearing is it detonating at around 3k. It kinda sputters and falls apart. Sounds like clicking or something when it happens. I am at a bit of a loss, compression is a solid 150psi across the board with no movement. Verified spark and now am assuming all injector are functioning more or less correct as if I unplug any one it sound terrible at idle. 
       
      A note, I tapped plugs at .7 manual called for .9-1.1 but that seems super over doing it but I will try adjusting them to 1.0
      additionally I’ve noticed the fan in rear doesn’t turn on. 
       
      anyone with any help I will be in your debt.

      I had to rebuild my steering box recently and need to replace the 2 square dust boots on the box. Joyner does not have them in stock and probably won't anytime soon. Does anyone know of an alternate replacement for these? Any help would be appreciated
