I have a set of standard travel lonestar arms and they have heim joints for the spindles. I hate them, they squeak and are getting loose, can I get ball joints to in there or are they only made to be used with these heim joints???

Man I hate them. I spray Honda silicone on them before every ride but when I was it afterward it squeaks horribly. Hopefully I can get some ball joints. I will try to get pics tonight.

best way is probably to take them apart and clean them good.

You are just making the situation worse when you spray silicone on them before you ride. The dirt/dust is just sticking to the silicone. Your best bet is to leave them dry. Seems like I saw some company making a cover for heim joints that had elastic on the ends. It covered the joint, and kept debris off. This was a couple years ago, so I'm not sure they even make anything like that now.
