I thought about them before, and talked it over with a local late model team. They are really big on clean cars and keeping binds down. The guys told me that they looked at some up close and did not like the idea. The problem they thought would be it would not seal perfect and fine dirt will get stuck inside and just grind the hiems. Also my question how long will they last before tearing? And what keeps them from coming apart and getting pieces binding up the hiem also.
Personally I think they would be a waste of money. there is no sub. for good cleaning and keeping all the hiems well lubed up.

Any seal is better than no seal at all. If you just keep them lubed with no seal then the rod ends are like a lolipop in the sand box and hang on to the dirt. If you can afford them use them.
