XM rod ends are good choices for motorsports and off-road applications. The body is machined with a significant groove going all the way around the interior of the body. The ball is then inserted into the machined slot, and a Teflon®/Kevlar® material is injected. These heavy duty rod ends are commonly used for their high strength and durability, and are completely self-sealing and self-lubricating because of their Teflon®/Kevlar® injection molded race that keeps dirt and debris out.
