I have heard almost all positive reviews regarding FIGS Toe Links. However, I was wondering if anyone else was using these in places with a snowy winter. I am up in Ohio and my Toe Links appear to be starting to rust. They also squeak unless I oil them very regularly. Any input is appreciated.
<-- another midwestern with figs no.2 arm heim joints on GS.
I go through a touchless wash once a week to get the crap off the undercarriage but so far I think there aren't any rust... i haven't inspected them closely lately though.
Have you read their blog and their entry about looking at heim joints with 40k miles exposed to the elemnts of Colorado? http://figsengineering.blogspot.com/...intenance.html

Here are the pics of what mine currently look like:
that doesn't look very good IMO. These parts should not rust especially on how expensive FIGS parts are. I thought the material was titanium in which they made there parts from. try and contact them for replacements. maybe you got a bad set?
Revive, are you running the FIGs arms as well or another brand?
I'm running a Figs rear set- had them about 4yrs now. Before I transitioned out of the military I was stationed in upstate NY where they salt the roads extremely heavily. Couldn't say for sure the exact amount of mileage I have on them but I know it's at least 50k. One of these days soon I'll probably just order some new rod ends from Mike and be on my way lol...
Btw, from looking at a couple pics in this thread I just want to mention that you want to have the rod end bearings centered and not off axis to prevent premature wear. Just something to be aware of.
i dont think mine are as bad as the pics above, but ive noticed a bit of play in my toe links. i just scrub down with a stiff nylon brush and spray down with graphite lube. i will admit, my car sounds horrible, but its also due to dry poly bushings ive been meaning to get re greased
