So is the IRO bracket the same as this RE? Or does IRO fully weld their bracket? I'm not looking to end up with problems after spending money. If that's the case, I'll just add KOR bushings to the factory tracbar and hope for the best and get a steering box brace and control arms.
Also, does anyone know if I can use the KOR harden bushings in the IRO tracbar? Seems I'm seeing that the bushings in the IRO bar might be the weak point, so that could be an area of upgrade and I'd still be under the cost of the Clayton. I don't want to sound like I'm knocking Clayton's or KOR, but I'm not seeing what makes their product worth that much more than the IRO.
Maybe it's my lack of knowledge of what a "clevite bushing" truly is and what it's really going to do for me. But how big of a difference is it really going to make when I see so many folks run the IRO straight up without issues? Is it a $100 difference? That $100 goes a long way toward a good set of adjustable HD Lower control arms...
Now, that frame bracket and the lack of welding, that's a whole different animal to me. That's a big difference. Is that a $100 value? Probably not when I can add the welds myself once it shows up and i see they're missing, but it tells me the level of quality in the parts used and craftsmanship too. Not that the RE stuff is bad, but it could have been better.
BTW, thanks for the feedback. It's much appreciated!! any and all is welcomed
