That's mostly because of how far down the bolts were on the bar, I've put in new bolt holes and got a good bit of that flex back.


I smiled at jalopy .

From now on, I'm calling it the Jay-lopy.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I've been looking to get just the bar for awhile now so I had to jump on this. I knew if I didn't get it now it would probably be awhile before another one popped up. I haven't been actively searching for one Imped's just happened to fall in my lap since I follow his build.

And just to save you some dough, use these: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fkb-cf8y/overview/

Much cheaper than Currie's and so far, they're holding up great. Go to Ace for the hardware and threaded rod and order the arms and frame pucks from Currie.

Much cheaper than currie by very very far http://www.currieenterprises.com/ces...t.aspx?id=2492

I could get all 4 through summit cheaper than the price of just one through currie. Thanks for showing that to me.

Edit: I am noticing that Currie has right hand threads on one end and left hand threads on the other end for the link rods. Is there any reason I can't do right hand thread on both the top and bottom of the rod so I can order four of the same rod ends from Summit? I'm having a brain fart here.

So you can adjust the length without unbolt ing the link.

Like Dan said, it makes adjusting the links a cinch since you don't have to unbolt them. But it's certainly not imperative, just like arms with RH/LH threads aren't. You won't be adjusting your links often anyway....but since you have to order some stuff from Currie anyway, you could always order the threaded rods.

Yeah I know why they do it like that I was just thinking out loud as to why maybe right hand thread only wouldn't work; but it will. Like I said I was having a brain fart and over thinking things. Thanks though.

Since I'll be adjusting the links the initial install and maybe once more if that, I'll just do the cheaper route and get the rods locally and order those rod ends from summit. Save myself some cash for my upcoming 4 link. Thanks for the help guys.

Just remember not all heim joints are created equal, there are cheap ones and not so cheap quality ones. Cheap isn't always the best, you have one of thoserodends break and end up poking in your tire or something silly like that, then the cheapo joint isn't so cheap anymore

While I agree with you I'm still willing to take Imped's word for it when he says his are holding up well so far. If one decides to let go then I'll switch to Currie's links. Until then I'll take that $24 risk. Thanks though.

They look and feel better than the Currie units and so far they're still tight and silent. It's not a critical part so I'm willing to take the risk and test them out.
