jk, no boobies.

The heim joints (spherical bushings) in my RUCAS (Yomato Garage) have developed some play and cause my rear wheel to wobble at high speeds when i let off or get on the accelerator. I purchased some quality replacement heim joints from a local shop but ran into a little problem.

The shop tells me that heim joints are only made in fine thread (which is what i just bought as replacement) but the joint that came on the control arm originally is coarse thread. I can't seem to locate either of the parts that would work. Im looking for a 5/8" heim joint coarse thread or a reducer with a 5/8" female (fine thread) and 1" male (fine thread i think).

Ive gone to just about every shop around the area and no one seems to know jack shit... instead they tell me i should sell my POS import and buy 'MERICAN!! CAUSE THIS IS THE SOUTH YALL AND WE DONT MESS WITH THEM TINKER TOY RICE BUCKETS FROM THEM CHING CHONG COUNTRIES YEEEEEEEE HAAAAAWWWWW

If you tell me to search, I'll cut you with a spoon.

I'll check again but I'm pretty sure they're out of business... plus their joints are shit. These country roads destroy them pretty quick. Im looking for something a little beefier... might just buy new arms all together :?

Beat me too it. If mcmaster-carr doesn't carry it, it is probably custom made/ordered.
