How stiff should longfield birfs be, I've had a 30 spline superset in my FJ75 then my FJ40 for about 5 years that have probably done about 2000km offroad, the birfs were really stiff when I first got them and I couldnt open them right round to 40 degrees by hand and I've had them out recently and they are still really stiff, is that normal for longfields to be that tight it dosent seem right to me?

plenty of grease in them?

Mine didn't just fall to an angle when I first got them, I had to push fairly well to get them to move side to side.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as they look good inside the joint
