The Currie Johnny Joint® is the original urethane bushed spherical ball joint and still the undisputed leader in articulation and durability. The bushings in the Johnny Joint are made of a proprietary urethane that surrounds a smooth heat treated inner ball that rotates without binding, enabling Johnny Joints to last up to 10 times longer than the knock-off products that flood the market.
Johnny Joint Features
Unmatched durability under the harshest conditions – The Johnny Joints installed under our two company Jeep JKs, have conquered the Rubicon trail to many times to counts, lead countless trail runs at Moab, have pre-run the full length of the Baja 1000 multiple times, and have covered more than 70,000 miles of highway driving with zero failures or parts replacement – no other suspension joint on the market comes close to matching the durability of the Johnny Joint!
Industry Leading Articulation – Johnny Joints are designed to allow your vehicle suspension to move freely without restriction. The smooth hardened ball center rotates inside the proprietary urethane bushing without binding or tearing the bushing material like rubber or sleeved urethane bushings. Johnny Joints are available with up to 40 degrees of articulation, 30 degrees is typical (varies based on mount width and bolt diameter)
Quiet Smooth Operation – Unlike steel heim joints, derlin or hard urethane bushings, Johnny Joints do not squeak, clunk or make otherwise annoying noises. The smooth ball center rotates quietly inside the proprietary urethane that provides a firm positive cushion that quiets and dampens trail impacts and road noise, making them the preferred solution for suspension designers, project builders and the replacement of inferior joints.
Simple Maintenance – Johnny Joints, like any serviceable parts on your vehicle, will last longer if you give them just a little maintenance. To keep your Johnny Joints happy, just give them a small shot of grease through the zerk fitting every 6 months or before any major off-road outing.
Fully Rebuildable – While an uncommon occurrence, every Johnny Joint can be fully rebuilt with one of our kits that contain: new urethane, side washers and a retaining snap ring.
