I did see your review on the RE toe arms. Are they the same? Do you own both, which one is actually noisy?
AFAIK, HPA just reanodizes RE's toe links black, so they are the same thing.
I'm sure street bumps and potholes are harder on spherical joints than track surfaces. Having said that, I'm a very careful driver and am very disappointed the spherical joints couldn't go 3 months w/o becoming noisy and that RE (and subsequently HPA) considers them a wear item and doesn't warranty them. Just fyi; your call.
