Modeling Joints – Ball and Socket Options

I'm working on a model spider tank. It's the one from Ghost in the shell. Right now, I am planning to use ball and socket joints but these typically get weaker over time and eventually just flop around and fail. For these joints, I usually add some superglue to roughen up the surface and they hold better but these are temporary fixes.

What other kinds of joints can be used that are easy to FDM print and "durable"? Are there libraries for these joints so I don't have to re-do everything?
