I thought FK was decent, but after seeing that their jam nuts are threaded crooked as hell...it made me wonder what kind of quality they offer in their joints. Aurora all the way.

I like using the "Seals-It" washers on rod ends. Then wipe the the ball & race with wheel bearing grease.

The only problem, the Seals-It washers are about .040 thick each so installing them requires .080" or so extra clearance. Easily accommodated with a new build up but can not always be fitted in existing brackets. [depends on the bracket and application]

They do a good job of keeping dirt out of the rod ends. [and grease in!] Really extends the rod end life.

Here is the Seals-It link: http://www.sealsit.com/rodend.asp
