Anyone had issues with sand penetration on the heim? I was looking at a vendor this weekend and they said that was the main issue with the total chaos arms. Thanks!

horsesht

Everyone needs to stop listening to vendors. They are the worst at spreading misinformation. If you want to know about a product, talk directly with the manufacturer. Pat at Total Chaos is a great guy and will answer any questions you have.

I have tens of thousands of miles and lots and lots of those miles in sand, silt, dust, and mud/water. I do not have any problems with my heims.

Good to know! Thanks.

I couldn't believe when I saw a vendor with a total chaos arm at a Jeep event.

He was spewing some bull to me and I wanted to see what you guys would say.

Definitely staying away from that company.

the biggest enemy to heims/uniball would be salt/snow/shit they put on the roads in the North. It will eventually destroy the teflon lining.


Oh if you get a rock jammed in the uniball in the UCA and you don't realize it and continue to offroad it will DESTROY/Gouge/REK the bearing lol. not sure how i was lucky enough to pull that off but it happened lol

The teflon is only good for 10k - 15k miles anyways. Its a $150 job to replace a pair

yea easy job unless the uniball is seized in the UCA cup. Required a press and a torch. And way more time then i planned on lol. I used ALOT of anti-seize when i put the new uniball in.
