ok, so i ordered this stuff on friday from ruffstuff. I had to order another 7/8x7/8 heim to finish parts for my front and rear links as well. I called and talked to Dan, He was nice enough to sub the smaller tube bung into my pair so i could keep my kit discount he was running.
I then had the epiphany that all Ruffstuffs misalingment spacers are for 2" mounting width and IRO's bracket is 1.75". So I called Dan back a few minutes ago and we discussed this. He said it will take a while but they may as well start stocking misalignments for 1.75" mounting widths. THis is probably a good idea because alot of the pre made bracket guys build in this dimension and they are probably loosing rod end business over a 2$ misalignment spacer....

Any who, It was "OK" ed that i just grind down the 2" misalignments equally to the 1.75" mounting width since a Panhard only needs about 6* of rotation anyways....just an update

Try again on the math:

IRO premium long-arm kit: $2,499.99
Clayton long-arm kit: $2,999.00

Yes, the IRO kit comes with D0uche Tech shocks but who cares . . . you need to pay an extra $250 to get real shocks.

I don't know any guys running Clayton's stuff who are wasting time retrofitting components . . .

Today I converted my track bar frame bushing to a heim joint. Having bushings on both ends gave me some steering slop and they were just to soft for my taste.
So....
1 iron rock off road double sheer adjustable track bar

7/8" heim


Drilled some plug weld holes in a properly sized Dom sleeve



Then welded it up along with the threaded bung


Done

I'm running the Clayton's track bar . The JJ is huge . The axle end uses a clevite stock style bushing and can be had in a HD version . Twice the price , twice the product !!

I'd buy IRO short arms because good for a good price is a no brainer . Not much else . Never used the track bar , anyone who knows me on here should know my opinion on poly bushings

I'm 100% with Technohead . That don't happen too often I ran RE arms and had bushing failure issues . Bought IRO LA's and had fitment issues with no help from IRO . Ran a few JKS products with no issues , and Clayton's , well , that's just where I should have started . Comparison of their product to any other , it's obvious , they are the best . It's one of those cases where expensive ends up paying for itself .

Nice job speedbucket !!
