Your steering shaft shouldnt be moving enough to use more then a couple degrees of movement. The heim/bearing is only to support the shaft from flopping around.

a heim is a bearing basically. so same as a pillow block. both serve the same purpose and do the same job with ease.

heim that is not serviceable. 30+
pillow block that you grease and should last forever 30 or whatever i said earlier in the thread.

Zach deleted all of his contact info. You could maybe find him via facebook or if you have his email.

Thks, I don't think I have his e-mail addie, I will CIO.

The extra pics may not be needed, the write up is good and the pic available are good enough but I thought it would be a good thing to see all of the pics just in case.

I contacted KLC, he can’t put them back.
