Neither RE nor HPA warranty spherical joints and consider them a wear item like brake pads. Replacement joints cost $30. each (2 per arm) plus labor if you don't diy.
I am looking to get these as an upgrade for my suspension. After owning a few track toys with spherical joints, I am used to they making noise after a while. Although some takes a lot more beating before becoming noisy. IMO, street miles are worse than most track miles. I haven't seen other negative reviews on these HPA toe arms. I did see your review on the RE toe arms. Are they the same? Do you own both, which one is actually noisy?
