Yes. 6 months seems to be typical, life of a Heim joint before clicking's heard, parts knockin' with wear. Find in colder weather, no click, maybe later.

To a manufacturer, they're easily available and being an industry standard, seem ideal for the job.

Yet, particularly without a dust & dirt boot, they wear quick. Replacement joints may be installed, but at half or more the original cost of toe arms and needing a rear alignment after install; PITA down time w/labor cost for non-DIY, it's a sizable expense most discover with experience.

Purchasing Megan toe arms to resolve clicking issue. Was wary of rubber introducing inaccuracy, but those who install 'em love 'em, to a man - zero bad reports. Could Megan's installed base be wrong?
