Uhhh....a quality spherical bearing should have no problem here. However, a rubber boot would be an easy addition to address this. The one downside, is that they don't show the additional steering input force required as a result of the decreased moment arm at the upright. Faster steering, yes, but also heavier. The xi steering is already pretty slow and heavy as it is. If you've ever run at a tight autox in an xi, you'll know what I'm referring to. I may run a few calculations and take a look into this. Perhaps I can develop something for you guys.
Pls pls pls!
