Uniballs are stronger (if the right material/size is used), but aside from that you're either stuck figuring out your Uniball situation or going with a solid front axle setup of some kind. That's really the only way to remove that particular weak link in the front steering/suspension setup.

Spherical bearings have been around for a long time.
