    So 2JR's anti-bump steer track rod end rose joints were pretty weak and not well protected. Rich and I decided to find upgrades, with better boots too. Here's before and after

    Before

    After
    New beefed up and teflon coated rose joints from McGill Motorsport

    Boots packed with CV grease

    Boot protection seems loads better with a proper seal and doubly protected by the grease. Happy.

    No I only just finished it, I was out today so did this this evening. Alignment tomorrow and will report back in a few weeks of use. Feel so much better about these joints and the boots though, should be a good upgrade.

    These things can only be properly understood whilst discussing over a curry.

    Sourced doesn't mean made we found the same spec & tried them for suitability. And as they were more cost effective being sourced from within the UK it was a no brainer. Also we found the upgrades before 2Jr announced they were providing stronger optional joints.

    What? We didn't get them made. We just found some rose joints that fitted. As Rich said it's better for us to source from the UK, but aside from that we didn't actually know about 2JR offering an upgrade, but theirs is 3-4 times the price anyway...
