If they are stock you are out of luck unless 4wd then you can cut the end and weld in a bung and plate it. For the 2wd beams you can use a uniball with a little bit of fab. I can take a pic of stock beams with a uniball if you would like.

What are the benefits of uniballs or heims versus say.. the stock bushing type pivots? (dumb question, I know.)

I think they are pretty much work the same. But you cant always mount a heim in every application. Shocks like king saw ect use uniballs. Radius arms its easier to use a heim.

You use hiems and uniballs for a few reasons such as they dont bind like bushings do,and generally they can take more of a beating
