I'll pass on a little rod-end lesson, that cost me a bunch...

When you add a grease fitting, you reduce the load rating by 50%...don't buy greaseable rod-ends for stressed applications.

People who build and race "cars", have no idea what kind of stress off-road driving produces...don't listen to the the guy that says we run 800 hp with those, and they don't break...
Some rod-ends are designed to break-away when they hit the wall, to save chassis damage, Well, thats nice to know, a average run up trail#2 at Tellico is like hitting the wall 20 times.

just some info.
