I should take pictures of my XM arms after spending some time in the rain...

Yeah, water & unsealed rod ends don't mix very well.

There are stainless ones.

My ends have the teflon races and hard chromed balls, but I will still run the boots.

I dont know why my ones started rusting. just surface rust. but yeah no idea.

 

If you want a loop hole around the RUCA issue with XM buy there JZX90 kit but ask for JZX81 roise joins and spacers it seems they made the X9 X10 lower arm 10MM shorter then X8 so it would work perfect on a X8 LOL

Mitch, can I purchase those square washers seperately ?

Are they 14mm ID, or are you doing something special ?

 

Never mind, found some stainless steel ones.

Yeah Gordon they're the exact boots I'm buying from eGay.

 

Mitto, did you have the pleasure of installing the Seals-It boots yet ?

I just did my first pair.

Talk about trying to shove 10 pounds of shit into a 1 pound bag !

But they went in finally, so I ordered the rest that I needed.

My understanding is the RUCA is on hold right now because the Xcessive is busy but it is not off the table. If you have questions about it you should get in touch with Rich at XM directly, he has a much better idea of what is going on than I do.

 

Space Case: Yes you can buy the lower arms separately, get in touch with Xcessive for more info.
