    Well it turns out that it wasnít the ball joints making the awful noise. The lower bolt on the tereflex drop bracket calls for 230 lbs of torque. Only bolt I didnít check. Was off slightly. No more noise. 60,000 miles and ball joints still tight. Been running 37ís since I got it and rock crawling at least 2-3 xís per month. Nothing extreme though.

    Teraflex. You can always count on it being a problem.

    Just an update. Noise came back. Shot grease in ball joints. Noise went away for a day. Put grease in them everyday until today when I had them replaced. They said they were still within spec but there is a notification difference in the steering now. Much tighter and no wobble at 55mph. So do they really get that noisy as they wear? I guess Iíll find out
