We set out to redesign our joint raceways to improve ease of serviceability. What we came up with made vast improvements to our already industry leading joints. Our completely redesigned joint raceways feature grease grooves, friction brakes and friction modifiers. Not only did this make our joints easier to service with conventional greases, it allowed us to make a tighter and longer lasting joints as well.
With our new raceways you can run up to a Grade 1 grease in our rebuildable track bar anti-wobble joints, 3/4” shank Krawler Joints and 7/8” shank Krawler Joints and up to a Grade 2 grease in the 1” shank Krawler Joints, 1.25” shank Krawler Joints and Pro Flex joints (frame side lower control arm joint).
It’s easy to tell what generation of raceway you have. All of the joints with new raceways have stainless steel set screws that hold the retainers in the joint housing as opposed to the old raceways that have black oxide coated set screws.
