    On the right are two of my old heim joints that seized up on me. On the left are two of there new type of heim joints! I posted two of both kinds so you can see both sides. Take a close look to see the differences! :)

    im looking but I cant see too much of a difference, other than a little ring on the new pair :oops:

    On a side note, I replaced my heim joints with their ball joints. they are really stiff and turning is alot harder, havent rode enough to make them loosen up yet.

    From ASR. When you look at the middle right older heim you can see the black urethane. It's like that on one side of each older heim. It's not like that on the newer heims!

    Back when I put my blaster together I got the ASR LT arms and the heim joints at the time and the same thing kept on happening i went thru like 3 or 4 full sets then switched out to ball joints finally and gave up on the heim joints i'd be interested to hear how the new ones work out
