Hello: I bought a ram from surplus center. It's a 1.5"x8" ram but has no heim joint ends. When we were taking measurements to install it we noticed that the drag link not only moves sideways and front to back, but it also moves up and down (about 1/2") due to the angled knuckles in my Dana 60 (and all axles, I think). It seems to me that something will eventually break if I install it without the heim joints, but I know many people have installed it like this. Can anybody with a setup like this tell me if it has held well or did something eventually break? Maybe post some pics? I could add a couple of heim joints, but that would be too expensive. The cost is the same as buying another ram because of shipping & handling & taxes, since I'm outside US. Any help greatly appreciated.
