Re: [DML] Re: Modified Trailing Arms For 1/2" Bolts



Expense and Noise, Vibration and Harshness reasons.  You see Heim joints on 
racecars because nobody cares about NVH.  Heim joints are expensive, they wear 
out a lot faster than a block of rubber, and they are very good at transmitting 
every bump into their mount points.

Bill,

Yes, and from what I have read of MIL-spec ball joints, items are available
today which would more than adequately perform the necessary task. My
question is if anyone knew why the original designers decided *against*
such a setup. I don't have a lot of the literature that folks like you and
David T have to go looking for answers in the past, so I was hoping someone
knew and could answer it here.

Thanks for the picture. I will save that for reference. :-)
