Wanted to update this thread. Today I found a bad rear tie rod end.
Not sure if I can find a replacement either.
May have to find a whole other solution now as these arms are no longer out there.

I have the Hard Race arms and am dreading that day when I need to do the same thing.

I know this thread is several months old, and isn't the "ball joint" section just a tie-rod?

I've been eyeballing a set of those hard race.

How do you like them?

A tie-rod is just a threaded female rod and having a ball joint on the end.

I saw those as well and maybe it's just me but there's something about them I don't care for. Look a little janky to my eye.

What does "janky" mean.
I have Hard Race fitted for around 50k without any running problems. Not impressed with anti corrosion. However with anything like this once adjusted itís rarely touched and if you think it needs adjusted then itís worth looking elsewhere for wear.

I have the Project Silver arms on my X. They may not look very good but they function very well. They are not that expensive and since I'm in Europe it saved me shipping and import duty.
They have been on the car for a few months, about 1300 miles now.

The red bushings feel soft like OEM rubber.
