    TSW (if they ever come off backorder) or H-Sport will be quiet and durable.
    Hard rubber (TSW) or poly(H-Sp) on those.
    If going for those with metal spherical or heim joints, pick something with rubber boots
    to protect from the elements, like the current Helix ones.

    +1 on the H-Sport or TSW. I have H-Sport because I like having the Zerk fitting to add lube if necessary.
